The police officer, on describing how Nagaraju has been doing the fraudulence, said,

“He closely observed MSK Prasad in a few prize distribution sessions and noted how he speaks. Then he changed his profile name to MSK Prasad on the True caller app, after which he impersonated the former cricketer and collected Rs 2.88 lakh claiming that he represented Kolkata Knight Riders.”

In another case, Nagaraju collected Rs 3.88 lakh using a similar modus operandi (impersonating MSK Prasad over a phone call) from Ramakrishna Housing Private Limited.

Police seized Rs 1, 80,500 in cash along with a Pulsar bike following Nagaraju’s arrest.

Nagaraju had once tried to enter the Guinness Book of World Records for “the longest individual cricket net session (male)” in 2016. He played in Ranji Trophy in 2014 representing the Andhra team.

The police statement further said, “Following the successes in his career, Nagaraju started getting sponsorships from different firms and got habituated to a luxurious lifestyle. In 2018 with a motive to earn easy money, he duped a person called N Gopal claiming that he would establish a Dhoni Cricket Academy in Visakhapatnam. Gopal filed a complaint and a case was registered at that time in Visakhapatnam.”
