Indian pacer Umesh Yadav was defrauded of Rs 44 lakh by his friend-director on the pretext of buying a plot in the former’s name in Nagpur city in Maharashtra, police said on Saturday. A police official said a case has been registered against Shailesh Thacker for cheating on a complaint filed by Yadav, a resident of Nagpur. Thackeray (37) is a resident of Koradi and a friend of Yadav.

No arrests yet. After Yadav was selected as a member of the Indian cricket team, he appointed his friend Thackeray as his manager on July 15, 2014, as the latter was unemployed, the official said citing the First Information Report (FIR). “Thakrey gained Yadav’s trust over time. He started handling all financial affairs of Umesh Yadav. He handled Yadav’s bank accounts, income tax and other financial functions,” he said. The official said that Yadav was looking for land to buy in Nagpur and asked Thackeray.

“Thacker owns a plot in a barren area. He told Yadav that he would get it for Rs 44 lakh. Yadav deposited Rs 44 lakh in Thacker’s bank account. However, Thackeray bought the plot in his name,” he said.

When Yadav came to know about the fraud, he asked Thackeray to transfer the plot in his name but the latter refused to oblige. He also refused to return the money, said the official. “Yadav filed a complaint with the police in Koradi, after which a case was registered under sections 406 (punishment for criminal breach of trust) and 420 (cheating and thereby dishonestly distributing property) of the Indian Penal Code,” the official added.
