New Delhi: As many as 156 youths were cheated when they tried to buy passes for Garba night concert by Falguni Pathak in Mumbai, Maharashtra. The incident came to light when a 20-year-old resident of Kandivali

The Mumbai Police informed that accused named Vishal Shah claimed to be an authorised dealer was selling tickets for Rs 3,300 each that is lower than the actual price of Rs 4,500.

An investigation has been launched in the matter while, Vishal and other associates have been booked under sections 406,420 and 34 of IPC and started searching for the accused. The police started search for the accused.

What Happened?

The situation unfolded when a man who claimed to be an authorized event ticket seller failed to provide the discounted tickets he had promised. As a result, the affected young people decided to report the incident to the Mumbai police.

The story began when a 20-year-old from Kandivali got information from a friend. This friend informed him that someone named Vishal Shah, who claimed to be an authorized seller for Falguni Pathak’s event in Borivali (West), was advertising tickets at a reduced price of Rs 3,300, which was significantly lower than the official price of Rs 4,500, as stated in the police complaint.

Motivated by this seemingly great opportunity, the 20-year-old, who runs a painting business, decided to buy tickets along with two of his friends. News of this attractive offer quickly spread, leading 153 more people in their network to express their interest in getting these tickets. Consequently, the 20-year-old and his friends collected the necessary funds from others. On Thursday, they informed Shah that they were ready to purchase a total of 156 tickets.
