Hyderabad: The Narsingi police have identified three bank accounts into which socialite Shilpa Chowdhary transferred the money she allegedly collected from several persons on the pretext of investments in real estate. Two of these bank accounts have been now frozen by the police.
The police learned that she diverted funds collected from the public for personal use and purchased properties and also produced a movie. The police had arrested Shilpa Chowdhary and her husband Shiva Prasad on Saturday.
“We suspect there are multiple bank accounts operated by the couple and we are trying to connect the accounts with the suspects before proceeding,” a senior police official said.
The Narsingi police have so far registered three cases following complaints from various persons who were allegedly duped by Shilpa Chowdhary and her husband. The money was collected from women from high profile families who were introduced to the couple during kitty parties held at her villa, police said.
Orders on a petition filed by the police seeking custody of the couple are expected from the court on Thursday. There were reports that the couple collected more than Rs.30 crore from different persons over a period of time on the pretext of investment in real estate. Police have retrieved CCTV footage from their residence at Gandipet and also collected details of their financial transactions.
