Kochi: More cheating complaints have now emerged against expelled NCP leader Jayakumar A (52) with the Eloor police on Sunday registering his arrest for allegedly cheating a woman of Rs 5.75 lakh in the cover of a land deal.

In her complaint, Eloor native Geetha George claimed Kumar had cheated her in 2007 by promising to help her buy a property at Manjumel.

“According to her, the incident happened in August 2007. He first took Rs 75, 000 with the promise to help her buy the land claiming that he knew the party. He then acted as middleman and she handed over Rs 5 lakh more. However the deal never materialised and he refused to return the money,” police said.

The Eloor police questioned him on Sunday and would return his custody to the Kalmassery police on Monday.

Jayakumar was arrested on August 16 by the Kalamassery police for allegedly swindling Rs 16 lakh from a woman hailing from Edappally on the pretext of starting a jewellery shop.

“A case was registered in this regard at Palarivattom Police station. During investigation, it was revealed he has several properties at key city areas like Elamakkara, Veekshanam Road and Eloor Vadakkum Bhagam and also owns luxury vehicles,” police said.

Meanwhile, the probe revealed Jayakumar has pending cases at Trikkarakka police station and also faces legal action for allegedly cheating several victims of Rs 1.30 crore.
