Perumbavoor: The First Class Magistrate Court on Friday dismissed the bail plea filed by Saritha S Nair.
Striking down the bail plea, the court has observed that Saritha’s release will hamper the probe in the case.
Saritha Nair was arrested in the case registered by the Perumbavoor police for allegedly duping Sajjad of Perumbavoor of Rs. 40.5 lakh. The victim was made to part with the money after the couple promised him to set up a solar plant and a windmill farm.
A similar case is pending against the couple for allegedly cheating another person of Rs. 1.35 crore. Police said that there were complaints against them at Thalassery, Kozhikode, Pathanamthitta and Mallappally.
Saritha, since 2000, is alleged to have been involved in more than 13 cases of cheating. Her latest escapade was conducted under the name of Team Solar, a company believed to have cheated numerous people of crores of rupees on promise of supplying solar panels and putting up windmill farms.
