The arrested were identified as Shajahan (43) and his partner Najima Banu (38). They were picked up from Mayabunder in Andaman last Saturday. The duo, along with the another couple – Shakeela (56) and Khaleel (62) – ran a private construction firm at the Rajakilpakkam. The four of them took `6 crores from L. Santhanakrishnan (63), a resident of Ashok Nagar, to build  the apartment complex in a prime spot in the City.

As the four kept evasion on getting the project going, Santhanakrishnan requested them to return his money saying he would find an another builder for his project. Unfazed, the respondents ignored him and avoided meeting him. A year ago, Santhanakrishnan preferred a petition in the protest redressal day at the City Police Commissionerate. Successively, the Central Crime Branch sleuths registered a case.

As interrogations corroborated the claims made by the complainant, a manhunt was launched. Shakeela and Khaleel were arrested on April 28 while her brother Shajahan &  Najima Banu went underground. Following a tip-off, cops traced the escaping couple to Mayabunder and have arrested them.
