Kathmandu, October 24

Police have arrested a ‘most wanted’ fraudster, who cheated several persons of cash on the pretext of sending them abroad for foreign employment and running real estate business and other trades.

Dinesh Koirala, 37, of Melung Rural Municipality, Dolakha, was also charged with banking offence. According to Metropolitan Police Crime Division, he was nabbed from Baluwatar and referred to Metropolitan Police Range for legal action.

Of late, MPCD had been searching for Koirala acting on a complaint lodged by Shyam Khadka of Khotang that the crime suspect defrauded him of Rs 1.9 million with the promise of sending him to Japan for foreign employment.

Khadka sought the help of MPCD after Koirala gave him a cheque equivalent to the amount in question despite knowing that he did not have balance in his bank account. On the basis of the bounced cheque, police have initiated banking offence case against him.

According to MPCD, over a dozen fraud complaints were filed by victims. “He used to victimise people by showing them  false dream of doubling their investment in real estate and other businesses overnight,” MPCD said.

Most of 24 victims who have approached police are from Morang, Jhapa and Sunsari. Koirala collected Rs 2.9 million from Sahadev Gurung of Sunsari, Rs 15 million from Umesh Ghale of Morang and Rs 9.9 million from Shivalal Puri of Morang. He was found to have defrauded the unwary people of over Rs 100 million in total.
