Bhubaneswar: A railway official designated as station master at Retang railway station was arrested for allegedly cheating a woman on the pretext of land sale.

The accused was identified as Pabitra Das, 50, a resident of Brahmanigaon under Binjharpur police limits in Jajpur district.

Das is accused of duping a woman of Rs 6 lakh with a promise to sell land.

Police arrested him on his way to home in Khandagiri yesterday night where he was staying.

According to reports, Das had taken Rs 6 lakh from a woman identified as Rashmita Samal following an agreement between them in 2015 to sell a land in Jajpur Road. Later, he told her to return her money when he delayed to sell his land.

He had given a cheque, which was bounced in the bank, following which Rashmita had moved the local court here.

The court ordered the Tamando police for immediate arrest of Das in the case.
