The Economic Offences Wing of Crime Branch Jammu filed the 214-page charge sheet in a court against Jameel Anjum and his wife Sana Mir for allegedly cheating Tripta Charak, incharge lecturer, district institute of education and training, the official said.

Charak, in her complaint to crime branch early this year, alleged that Anjum introduced himself as a public relation officer of a former minister and swindled an amount of Rs 6 lakh on the pretext of arranging a piece of JDA land at Channi Rama area of Jammu.

On receipt of the complaint, a preliminary inquiry was initiated and the allegations were prima-facie substantiated, leading to the registration of a formal case for in-depth investigation, the official said.
