The Samtanagar police are on a lookout for a fraudster who duped a 45-year-old nurse of Rs 9 lakh on the pretext of giving a child for adoption.


The accused had taken the nurse's Aadhaar card, PAN card and bank details for completing adoption formalities. Later, using the same documents the accused bought a motorcycle worth Rs 80,000 and a mobile phone on loan from a finance company. But when he did not repay the loan, the recovery agents started calling her for the payment she got worried and filed a complaint at the police station on Wednesday.



According to police sources, the complainant nurse is a resident of Kandivali East, who is working as a caretaker. The complainant said that she had been married to her husband for 15 years but was not conceiving. The couple in 2020 decided to adopt a child and started making enquiries about the procedure for adoption.


Through a common friend she had met Sahil Abdul Hameed Shaikh who had promised her a child that she could adopt from an orphanage in Thane Asharam and had taken Rs 50,000 from her for the documents.
