The accused, who has been identified as Nagarjuna Reddy, had called up Suresh Babu and urged him to transfer Rs 1 lakh to him to procure vaccines for 500 people. Following this, the producer unsuspectingly transferred the money into the account of T Laxmi, Reddy's wife, believing the words of the caller.

The studio owner had wanted to get the vaccines for the employees working at his production house.

After the payment was made, however, the accused switched off his phone. Neither did he deliver the promised vaccines.
