The trio is at large, police said and a manhunt has been launched to trace them.
Dickel informed in her police complaint that she invested 49,000 euros (approx Rs 34 lakh) in their business and for sending ‘Diamond Jewellery’ to Sydney in Australia. The entire episode happened prior to October 23, 2012.
However, during her trip to Australia she found that the jewellery dispatched to Sydney for the business was not genuine.
Panjim police have registered a case under Section 420 (cheating) read with Section 34 (common intention) of the IPC. [H]
