In a shocking turn of events, the 44-year-old woman, identified as Malavika Devati, who allegedly defrauded a US-based NRI of Rs 65 lakh on the pretext of marriage, has a second such complaint against her within a week of her arrest.
As per media reports, a city-based IT professional has lodged a complaint with the KPHB Police accusing Malavika of duping him of over Rs 1 crore via matrimony fraud.
The 33-year-old techie claimed that Malavika allegedly lured him by her “love chats” on WhatsApp and Telegram. He said that apart from digging into his own savings, he even borrowed money to transfer it to Malavika.
On May 27, the Jubilee Hills Police arrested Malvika and her son Pranav Lalith Gopal Devathi (22) for allegedly cheating a US-based NRI engineer. She allegedly lured him on a matrimonial site using a fake profile. She pretended to be a doctor named Keerthi from Jubillee Hills.
Malvika told him that she owns a number of properties and her mother was forcing her to transfer them on to her name. Her father had died and she needed money to fight a legal battle. The NRI got convinced and transferred Rs 65 lakhs. After extracting the money, she vanished.
According to a leading daily’s report, on Monday, the aggrieved Hyderabad techie filed a police complaint alleging that Malvika used a fake profile with a fictitious name of Anu Pallavi Maganti, a doctor in the US, on Telugu matrimony website to defraud him.
