Mangaluru: CEN police have apprehended Kalathur Vishwanath Shetty, a businessman from Mumbai, in connection with a financial fraud case.

According to the police, Vishwanath Shetty, along with an accomplice known as Kadam from Mumbai, had promised to help avail a loan of Rs 300 crores to the building construction company. The accused had reportedly taken an advance of Rs 1.75 crore from them. However, it was later revealed that Shetty failed to deliver on his promise.
