Bhubaneswar: The Mancheswar unit of Commissionerate Police arrested a high profile fraudster on Saturday for allegedly duping people crores of rupees.
One Prabhakar Jena, a resident of Aul area in Kendrapara district, had reportedly taken around four crore rupees from different people assuring them to provide high interest in a short period of time.

During interrogation police came to know that Jena went to work at a bag manufacturing company in Chennai after completing Plus Two. He worked there for over 10 years and wanted to become the owner by opening such companies in Odisha.
Sources said that the accused will be forwarded to the court later today after going through a medical examination.
