Hyderabad: The Hyderabad Police Detective Department on Tuesday arrested one person on charges of cheating the American Express Banking Corporation of nearly Rs 7 crore.
The accused, Mohan Kottilingam Uddanda (39) of Chandanagar, and a native of Guntur district in AP, earlier worked with a private company, which had given him a credit card of American Express Bank along with other documents. A few months later, Mohan resigned but did not return the card.
“He, along with his friends used the card while on a trip to Goa and later misappropriated an amount of Rs 7 crore withdrawn by presenting 14 cheques of different banks towards withdrawals for using the card,” Joint Commissioner of Police (Detective Department) Avinash Mohanty said.
Mohan was produced before a court and remanded.
