Dhanya was arrested more than a month after her husband John Jacob’s father was held by police for allegedly duping customers of his real estate firm. Dhanya Mary Varghese has been arrested for financial fraud of Rs 130 crore, said police.
Jacob Samson is the chairman of Samson and Sons Builders and Developers Limited, which he runs with his two sons John and Sam. He was held by district Crime Branch in Thiruvananthapuram earlier for defrauding the investors with the promise of high-interest rates.
Varghese, her husband John and his brother Samuel, were on the run after complaints filed by clients, who had booked apartments from Samson Builders, owned by John’s family, but the company failed to honour the contracts.
