Cairo: A 57-year-old woman beggar who owned five buildings and had over 3 million Egyptian pounds (Rs 1.4 crore) in bank accounts has been arrested by Egyptian police.
The woman named Nafisa was reportedly a wheelchair user and used to beg citing her physical paralysis, but eyewitnesses claimed that she was seen walking on foot after begging.

According to a report, Police also found that Nafisa does not suffer from any illness and owns five residential buildings in Gharbia and Qaliubia and nearly LE3 million in her two bank accounts.
