The conmen approached a city businessman and claimed that the magical pot was used for the successful execution of Chandrayaan-3 project and said the buyer could sell the vessel technology to others for a whopping amount. They convinced the businessman to buy the pot and duped him for Rs 20 crore. Realising that he was conned, the victim filed a complaint with the Medipally police station. After registering an FIR, the police launched an investigation and arrested three accused persons including Vijay Kumar and are interrogating them.
