Invested in the name of getting a luxury car at a discount

STF interrogation revealed that the accused had collected about five crore rupees from the financier. Had promised to return 1.5 crore on 1 crore after the show. Due to repeated date changes, the investors refused to invest due to the fear of cancellation of the show.

Many rich people of Lucknow got trapped in this scheme. In a few days, 35 four wheelers and about 100 bikes were booked. Four crore rupees were deposited in a few days. On the other hand, only two thousand tickets were sold through Book My Show and other platforms. It is impossible to have a show in this situation, then he switched off his mobile and ran away. When the financier realized the fraud, he did not register an FIR to avoid the police and the Income Tax Department.

Told the financier to organize a program in Guwahati later

The thugs told during interrogation that due to the match being held at Ekana Stadium, the date of May-2022 was further extended to October 6, 2022. This time too, due to the match being held at Ekana Stadium, they kept on promising to extend the date. Investors got angry on this. But, saying that the money given to the stars would sink, they talked about getting the show done anywhere in India.

After that we decided to get the show done in Guwahati. A day before the show was to be held, it started raining, due to which the show in Guwahati could not be held. After this, on 20 November 2022, the date of the show was again fixed at Ekana Stadium. For this, publicity was done through print media, TV news channel along with banner posters etc. in the city.

Office opened in Lucknow Sadar for tickets

The ticket price for the show was kept from Rs 499 to Rs 6,000. Tickets were sold online. Only two thousand tickets were sold, so the organizers felt that if only this many tickets were sold, then even the expenses of the show would not be covered. After this they absconded. An office was also opened by the company in Sadar area of ​​Lucknow. Who looked after the work related to ticket sales.
