Desperate in the hope of finding some solution to her problems she narrated all her family issues to him including her marital issues and the unemployment of her son.
Navbharat Times reports that in her police complaint, the doctor has alleged that the tantric then took money from her at regular intervals to conduct special prayers that would solve her problems including making her look youthful, get her unemployed son a job as well as double the value of gold in her possession. As per the complaint, in the last seven years, the woman alleged that the ‘tantrik’ lured her into paying Rs 65 lakhs in cash and 1.5 kg of gold jewellery worth Rs 1.35 crores.
She started suspecting the tantrik soon after noticing that her problems were nowhere near the solution. Further, she aded in her complaint that when she repeatedly asked him to return her money, the man threatened to kill her family. Realizing the trap she had fallen in, the doctor approached police and lodged a complaint.
The police have now taken the man in custody and are investigating the case.
