Kolkata, Feb 1 IANS | 8 months ago

A court here Saturday sent a man arrested for allegedly duping former Indian cricketer V.V.S. Laxman to eight days transit remand so he can taken to Hyderabad for questioning, police said.

A police team from Cyberabad which is investigating the case following Laxman's complaint that Rs.10 lakh was fraudulently withdrawn from his bank account in Hyderabad, arrived in the city earlier in the day and will be escorting Izazul Sheikh back for interrogation.

Sheikh, who allegedly siphoned the money from Laxman's bank account, was arrested from a nationalised bank's branch in Salt Lake area here Friday.

"Sheikh was presented before a court here which remanded him in police custody for eight days. He will be taken to Hyderabad for interrogation by the Cyberabad police who are investigating the case," said Deputy Commissioner of Police (Detective Department) Arnab Ghosh.

Laxman had filed the complaint earlier this week after discovering the money was withdrawn from his bank account without his knowledge.

According to police, bank officials had alerted them after Rs.10 lakh was deposited into Sheikh's long-dormant bank account.

"Following the information from the bank as well as intimation from the Cyberabad police, we laid a trap and apprehended Sheikh," said Ghosh.
