A court in Kolkata on Saturday, sent a man arrested for allegedly duping former Indian cricketer V.V.S. Laxman to eight days police custody, police said.

Izazul Sheikh, who allegedly siphoned Rs.10 lakh from Laxman's bank account in Hyderabad, was arrested Friday from a nationalised bank's branch in Salt Lake area in Kolkata.

Sheikh was brought before a court which sent him to eight days police custody, said Deputy Commissioner of Police (Detective Department) Arnab Ghosh.

Laxman had filed a complaint with Cyberabad police after discovering that Rs.10 lakh was withdrawn from his bank account without his knowledge.

According to police, bank officials had alerted them after the same amount was deposited into Sheikh's long dormant account at the Salt Lake branch.

"Following the information from the bank as well as intimation from the Cyberabad police, we laid a trap and apprehended Sheikh," added Ghosh.
