Initially, Srinivas told Puttaraju that it will cost Rs75 lakh. After some bargaining, Srinivas agreed for Rs 55 lakh, Puttaraju stated in his complaint. Puttaraju and Krishnappa came to the city with an advance of Rs18 lakh cash on October 4 and handed over the same to Srinivas in a hotel on New BEL Road. “A common friend of ours told us that Srinivas is cheating people after promising government jobs and it is impossible to get the SI post by paying money. Realising that I have been cheated, I am filing the complaint,” he said.
