Anguruwathota Police arrested a person who defrauded more than Rs. 5 million worth of cash and gold from a large number of people, while posing as an astrologer and custodian of a devalaya.

He had operated a YouTube channel promoting himself as person with a doctorate and many other honorary titles, but the Police said investigations have revealed that he has not even passed the GCE Ordinary Level Exam. He also has appeared under three names from time to time.

Police had launched an investigation after receiving several complaints against the suspect.

The 42-year-old suspect, a resident of Anguruwathota, is to be produced before the Horana Magistrate’s Court.
