Escort Girl in Kerala
Bengaluru: A 41-year-old Tamil Nadu-based builder was conned by an escort girl, who made away with his gold chain, cash and an iPad from a star hotel on Old Airport Road last weekend.
The builder, Vasanth Raj, had gone to fetch liquor from the hotel’s bar for the woman when she managed to sneak away with his belongings.
A complaint was lodged on April 25 at the Jeevanbima Nagar police station by the builder’s friend in the city, Ritvik Shetty, the police said.
Ritvik is the chairman of the Indian National Trade Union Congress (INTUC) in Chamrajnagar District. The police said he lied to them that Vasanth Raj was a former minister.
Vasanth Raj was staying with another friend Rajan and the suite was booked by Shetty. The incident happened on April 23 at Leela Palace when the former called up the escort girl to the hotel.
After entering the room, the girl asked for liquor, following which Raj went to the bar to fetch liquor when she made away with the builder’s belongings.
Vasanth Raj returned to the suite with the liquor, but found the girl missing with his valuables. He immediately called Ritvik and narrated the incident. Ritvikh went to the police two days later and lodged a complaint on April 25 after the two realtors went away from the city, the police said.
To ensure that the police acted on the complaint, Ritvik had lied to the police that Vasanth Raj was a former minister of Tamil Nadu. However, during the investigation, the police found out that Vasanth Raj is a builder from Chennai.
The police have now launched manhunt for the escort girl, who is on the run. “We have ascertained the identity of the girl from the hotel CCTV footage. She had written in the visitor’s register at the hotel desk that she was from Hyderabad, ” said a senior police officer.
