A wanted criminal has been arrested in cases of various fraudulent activities in the city. He was also running coaching classes for competitive exams.
Rajesh Nimawat was a wanted criminal in 11 cases. Until now he conveniently managed to escape law for 8 years by changing areas of operation. Bhupalpura police arrested him from Tonk. Rajesh was B.Tech and in the process of escaping being caught, he shifted from one district to another where he held classes for competitive exams like IAS, IPS, RAS etc.
He even cheated people through VC by asking them to pool in 300 rupees each in his company Shyam Enterprises in Udaipur. A number of people invested in his company in Udaipur in the hope of getting huge amount of money as the lottery opened. Rajesh even cheated people in rural areas in the name of Recurring deposits (RD) and took lakhs of rupees from them. To gain trust he gave cheques to people which bounced. A case was registered against him under 138 Negotiable Instruments Act. He was absconding since then.
In the absence of bail in 11 cases of cheque bounce, Rajesh was sent to jail. Later bail was accepted in 10 cases. He was jailed on Tuesday since he could not be bailed out in one case.
