COIMBATORE: The district crime branch (DCB) of the Coimbatore rural police arrested a 24-year-old woman on Thursday for swindling Rs 73 lakh from the account of a fuel outlet at Chettipalayam from 2019-2022.

A few months ago, Rajkumar came to know that Kousalya had diverted Rs 73 lakh to her accounts from the accounts of the fuel outlet after his son Srikanth, an engineering graduate, audited the accounts of the outlet.
Rajkumar approached the district crime branch police on Thursday.
The police registered a case against the woman for cheating and arrested her. Preliminary inquiries revealed that Kousalya had not gone for work for the last one year. She was studying undergraduate course in a college in Coimbatore city.
