Kochi: Monson Mavunkal, who is accused in the antiquities fraud case, had used the name of Tamil actor Vikram to carry out a business deal. Monson falsely claimed that he was Vikram’s benami and tried to buy an antique company in Mattancherry three years ago.

Abdul Salam, the owner of the company, told Mathrubhumi News that Monson had offered a sum of Rs 50 crore to buy his company. He even showed Salam the documents to prove that he has cash deposits in his account in HSBC Bank.

Salam decided to sell the company after he fell ill. Monson first approached him to buy the company through one of his friends in Ernakulam. After meeting up with Monson, a price of Rs 50 crores was agreed by both parties. Monson also told Salam that actor Vikram was the one who is paying for this deal and he will come there soon.

“After this deal was fixed, I had to let go of 50 of my staff and had to cancel the agreements made with tourism companies. Due to this, I had lost crores of rupees,” Salam added.
