Mumbai, Mar 25 (UNI) A businessman was allegedly cheated to the tune of Rs 76 lakh by a commission agent in the western suburb of Malad recently.

The complainant, Dinesh Pravesh Agarwal (33), in the first information report (FIR) registered yesterday with Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of Mumbai Police said that Bharat Mahaprasad Sevak (42) had promised to make him avail a sum of Rs 35 crore as loan amount from a nationalised bank for the upgradation of business, according to the police.
