Perinthalmanna: Police have apprehended a woman, Sabanath (37) from Thazhekode in Perinthalmanna, on allegations of embezzling funds from a 65-year-old man. The arrest took place after the woman reportedly engaged in honey-trapping tactics to deceive the victim.

According to the complainant, hailing from Aliparambu, the woman and five others embezzled Rs 2 lakh from him. He complained to the police that the woman befriended him and asked him to come to her house.

At the same time, the arrested woman had previously filed a complaint against the 65-year-old man, alleging that he broke into her house on March 17 and attempted to abuse her. Police also filed a case based on her complaint.
