A top fast bowler for the Indian cricket team was duped out of millions of rupees by his own buddy and former manager.
A case of fraud costing lakhs has been exposed involving a renowned fast bowler for Team India. The unique aspect is that the cheater was none other than his own former manager and friend. We’re talking about Umesh Yadav, the Indian team’s quick bowler. His acquaintance and previous manager, according to the material, allegedly defrauded Umesh of Rs 44 lakh.
This scam occurred during the purchase of a land in Nagpur, Maharashtra, under the name of Umesh Yadav.On Saturday, the police were notified of the situation.
According to a police officer, a case of cheating has been filed against Shailesh Thackeray on the complaint of Nagpur resident Umesh Yadav.
Thackeray (37) is a Koradi inhabitant and Umesh Yadav’s buddy. There has yet to be an arrest.
Citing the official’s FIR, he stated that when Umesh Yadav was named to the Indian squad, he nominated his buddy Thackeray as his manager on July 15, 2014, because he was unemployed at the time.
According to the source, Thackeray eventually became Umesh Yadav’s confidant and began overseeing all of Umesh Yadav’s financial issues. He investigated the cricketer’s bank accounts, income taxes, and other financial issues.
He went on to say that Umesh intended to acquire land in Nagpur and had informed Thackeray about it.
Thackeray found a piece in a desolate location and informed Umesh Yadav that he would buy it for Rs 44 lakh, which he placed in Thackeray’s account. However, Thackeray purchased this site under his name.
When Umesh Yadav discovered the deception, he begged Thackeray to transfer the plot into his name, but he refused. Thackeray also refused to reimburse Umesh Yadav for this sum.
Umesh Yadav has filed a FIR in Koradi under Indian Penal Code sections 406 and 420. Umesh Yadav was last seen playing in a Test series against Bangladesh around a month ago, in December.
During that tour, he assumed command of Team India’s fast bowling attack in the Mirpur Test. He also played a T20 International match for Team India against South Africa in October 2022.
At the same time, he is out of ODI cricket for an extended period of time. On October 24, 2018, he played his final ODI against the West Indies. Apart from that, he had an outstanding performance for Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL 2022.
