There is a gradual increase in the number of crime cases reported in Vijayawada. In recent times, one doesn't feel safe amongst their own people. People committing a crime against their own relatives are not uncommon. So being cheated by strangers is nothing to be surprised about.
In one such case, a woman trusted a man who she came in contact with via a missed call. He promised to give her a job, but when she met him, he asked her to satisfy his sexual desire.
She understood that she was deceived and cleverly managed to escape from his trap.
According to the victim and the police, the woman from Nellore married seven years ago. She has a 3-year-old child. She got divorced three years ago and is staying away from her husband.
Some days ago, she dialled a number assuming it was that of her friend. The accused, Ramesh, got acquainted with her as a real estate businessman. She told him about her financial problems and requested him to find her a job. He made a false promise to get her a job where he worked. Ramesh told her that he was coming to Vijayawada on Friday. She also went to Vijayawada hoping to get a job.
The two met in Vijayawada in the afternoon. Ramesh took her to Gannavaram Airport in a car. He parked the car next to the Chennai-Kolkata highway and misbehaved with her. He sought sexual favours in exchange for a job. The lady was immediately on guard and immediately got off the car and informed the police through Dial 100. Ramesh knowing this, fled from there.
The police, after reaching the spot searched for Ramesh with the help of the victim, in vain. The victim lodged a complaint with the police and the investigation is on.
