Earlier in 2018, a patient named Sameena came into contact with the doctor and later he started visiting her frequently for dressing after her surgery. And, it was through Sameena that the doctor met a Tantrik, who claimed that he had magical powers and also promised to give the doctor ‘Aladdin Ka Chirag’ which will make him a billionaire.
According to the doctor, the Tantrik and his friend would often make him see a ‘jinn’ appearing from the magical lamp. But, they never allowed him to take it home saying that touching it would be ominous for him.
The doctor further alleged that the two accused have collected a total of Rs 2.5 crore in installments from him. However, later, the doctor realized that he was being cheated and the ‘jinn’ figure he was being shown was actually Sameena’s husband.
Soon after realizing that he was being cheated, the doctor approached the police who arrested the two men, Islamuddin and his friend Anees, while search is on for the woman.
