Several people, including a head constable, were duped of at least Rs 1 crore by some fraudsters under the pretext of getting a better return on investment, according to police.

The police informed that the accused lured people by promising 18 to 20% profit on investment. They also opened their office, but fled away after closing it within 15 days. An FIR has been registered in this regard, they added.

A complaint by head constable Devendra Kumar at Sector 40 police station names Manish Kasana, Lalit, Shubham Chaudhary, Ajay Pratap, Rahul Malik and Rajesh Kumar were involved in this fraud. The accused are said to be residents of Duloth village in Haryana's Mahendragarh district.

"The accused opened an office named Infinity Grow in the JMD Megapolis building on Sohna Road. They lured people with 18 to 20 per cent profit per month by investing. The accused fled in 15 days after taking around Rs 1 crore from many people. I also had invested Rs 11 lakh but now the accused threatened to kill me," said the head constable in his complaint.

An FIR was registered under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). Sector 40 police station SHO Inspector Surender Singh said that the police was investigating the matter and assured that the accused will be arrested soon.
