Dimapur, Dec. 10 (EMN): Dimapur Police has finally arrested a habitual fraudster who is wanted in several north-eastern states for duping many people using fictitious finance firms and has been on the run for the past four years.
Several complaints were lodged at East Police Station in 2018 and 2022 against one finance company by the name ‘Samrat Motors & Enterprise’ and’ Asshirvaad Associates’ run by the fraudster.
According to Dimapur Police, the conman, who revealed his real name as Manindra Kakoti, used several fake names such as Shiva Narayan Sharma alias Mahesh Sarma alias @ Satish kumar bora to cheat multiple people in Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, Assam and Manipur states.
The fraudster duped the victims of “lakhs of rupees by taking 2% to 4% of the loan assured for processing and project fees which would lead to financial and technical support to set up small-scale factories and businesses”, said the police in an update issued on Saturday.
A team of Dimapur Police took up the investigation based on the cases lodged at Dimapur East P.S and Dimapur East P.S. against the conman and “learned that the alleged accused was a professional fraudster whose identity was well hidden and presumed to be non-existent”. “However, after continuous technical investigative methods, the said fraudster/conman was finally arrested,” the police informed on December 10.

(based in 2016), M/s Samrat Motors & Enterprise (based in 2018), M/s Asshirvaad Associates (based in 2021), M/s Omega Associates (based in 2021) and M/s Star Marketing Services (based in 2022)”.
The accused revealed that he used fake names in operating his businesses to hide his real identity from the law enforcement agencies.
He is involved in many criminal cases registered in various parts of north-eastern states, including one lodged at Naharlagun P.S in Arunachal Pradesh, informed the update, adding that “details of more registered cases are yet to be received from other investigation agencies”.
