Dubai, May 31, 2020: Scores of UAE businessmen have been left counting their losses after a company owner shut shop and fled the country on an Indian repatriation flight after stealing goods worth nearly six million dirhams.
Yogesh Ashok Yariava, 36, owner of the fraudulent Royal Luck Foodstuff Trading and prime suspect in the audacious scam took a flight to Hyderabad from Abu Dhabi on May 11 under the Vande Bharat Mission with around 170 evacuees. Gulf News can reveal.
His mandatory two-week quarantine period would have ended on May 25, but for his 40 odd victims a protracted battle for justice has just begun.
Last Wednesday many of them trooped down to the Indian Consulate office in Dubai in the hope of getting an audience with Consul General Vipul. The following day they went to Bur Dubai police station clutching dud bank cheques.
