A week after news about a Bengaluru-based Ponzi company duping sporting icons Rahul Dravid, Saina Nehwal, and Prakash Padukone among others made the rounds, the cricketer has reportedly filed a police complaint against the company.
According to a report by News18, Dravid lodged a complaint against Vikram Investments saying that they are yet to pay him Rs 4 crore. In his complaint at Indiranagar police, he said that he had invested Rs 20 crore in the company but got only Rs 16 crore in return. The company are yet to match even his initial investment.
The complaint has been transferred to Banashankari police, who are investigating the company.
Earlier reports stated that a firm called Vikram Investment Company was responsible for the scheme where several prominent people were duped crores of rupees. The company had reportedly promised up to 40% returns on investments.
Bengaluru police have already arrested the owner Raghavendra Sreenath along with agents Sutram Suresh, Narasimhamurthy, KC Nagaraj and Prahlad for duping over 800 people.
Suresh is said to be a known sports journalist in the city and was supposedly the one to convince the sportspersons to invest money in this scheme.
