Identified as Samir Horo, a resident of Hopuaura village under Kamdera police station in Gumla district, the youth said that he had paid Rs 13,000 to a BSF jawan Ajay Yadav while buying his scooter online.
” He has cheated me. The deal was struck online and the price of the scooter was fixed at Rs 29,000. Out of this amount I paid Yadav Rs 13.000 by Paytm. I promised him that the rest amount will be paid at the time of the delivery of the vehicle. Yadav had asked me to come near the gate of Adityapur thana for receiving the scooter on Saturday morning. I came according to the programme, but he did not turn up,” said Horo.
The youth said Yadav had given him two cellphone numbers — 9982762992, 9024618514) for contacting him after reaching to Adityapur. “I called Yadav on one of these numbers after reaching near the Adityapurpolice station gate at about 11 am on Saturday, but he replied that as he was busy and it will take another two hours to be released, I waited for him the whole day till the evening. Despite waiting for a complete day, I went over to the house of one of my relatives in Gamharia for staying there and returned to the Adityapurpolice station gate in the morning. As I rang to Yadav, his cellphone was found switched off repeatedly,” narrated the youth.
Horo said he wanted to lodge an FIR with the Adityapurpolice station against the said BSF jawan, but the OC, Adityapur said as he had transacted with Yadav from Gumpla, the case will be registered from there only. The youth returned back from the Adityapurfor Gumla.
