BHUBANESWAR: A City-based builder was arrested by Nayapalli police here on Sunday on charges of duping one of his customers of Rs 12.5 lakh.
As per the complaint filed by one Gourahari Dash, the builder Himanshu Bhushan Dash took the amount from him in 2009 promising him a flat in one of his projects at Gothapatna in Chandaka. But, neither Gourahari got the possession of the flat nor the advance amount refunded. In fact, Gourahari has been on the lookout for Himanshu all these years, but could never trace him.
Acting on the complaint, police arrested the accused and produced him in a local court.
