Absconding cheater held by Delhi Police
New Delhi: The Delhi Police on Monday nabbed a man who was accused in a cheating case and had been on the run since 2002.
Ved Prakash Malik, who cheated unsuspecting electricity consumers of Najafgarh’s Shyam Colony, was nabbed by a special team of Bindapur Police Station in West Delhi. The case against Malik was registered at the Najafgarh Police Station.
Malik was today produced before a local court in Dwarka and was sent to one-day judicial remand.
Head constable Rohtash Singh, who along with constable Amarjeet nabbed the absconder, told Zeenews.com that in 2002 Malik impersonated himself as a DESU contractor and collected money from Shyam Colony residents for new electricity connections.
However, he did not submit the money collected over a period of almost one year with DESU and was on the run ever since a complaint was registered against him.
