But after depositing of amount Jahirul Islam and his wife fled away from Arunachal Pradesh and closed their office. On receipt of the first information, a preliminary enquiry was conducted by SI RK Jha on the direction of SP Capital. Upon preliminary enquiry prima facie of cheating found and as such Nlg PS Case no. 41/21 u/s 468/471/420/34 IPC registered and endorsed to SI R.K Jha for investigation.
The Capital SP Jimmy Chiram later formed a team consisting Rike Kamsi, SDPO NLG, Inspector K Yangfo and SI Randhir Kumar Jha. The team put the accused under surveillance.

After putting much effort, the accused Jahirul Islam was traced and arrested from Juria, Nagaon by SI RK Jha and team under the close supervision of SP Capital. He was examined wherein he confessed his involvement. The Naharlagun police sources said.
Investigation so far reveals that, earlier the accused Jahirul Islam was an employee in MPEG Business Private Ltd. During the last part of 2020, he came to Naharlagun and hired a room on rental basis in Bucho Motors Complex, Naharlagun and set up an office purportedly a branch of MPEG Business Private Ltd. He faked a Company authorisation letter to start a company branch. He employed some staff as well. To make his whole fraudulent set up a real business before the eyes of innocent people, officials of the company were made to visit his office by misleading them. Initially, to lure people he distributed Mushroom seeds in small scale and the business was going fine. People started believing business to be a legitimate and seemed profitable. During the month of January 2021, three victims were also lured. They were asked to deposit certain amount with a false assurance to appoint them as main distributors of Arunachal Pradesh. Accordingly, in good faith Yaluk Ronya Konya, Tamuk Yachuk, and Riba Cheri deposited Rs. 31,33780/-, 11,81000/- and Rs. 4,00,000 respectively. After taking the money so deposited, the accused remained absconded. It is suspected that there more victims who fell prey to this fraud including the staff he had employed in his office and as such a thorough investigation is done to unearth the whole gamut of the fraud.
Meanwhile, Capital complex SP Jimmy Chiram warns people to verify properly before venturing into any kind of business so that no one becomes victim of such fraud in future.
