We all know how much costly it is to stay in five-star hotels and a person should not stay for a longer period if he/she cannot afford. Taj Banjara, a 5-star hotel from Hyderabad has filed a complaint against a businessman who has stayed in the hotel for 102 days but he is not making payment of his pending bill of Rs 12.34 lakhs.
The name of the accused is Shankar Narayan and as per the hotel, he bargained and got a luxury suite at a discounted rate because he wanted to stay for a longer period. However, on April 15, he left the hotel without even informing anyone and also didn’t pay the pending bill.
Sub-Inspector Ravi from the Banjara Hills police station has revealed that the total bill was of Rs 25.96 lakh and made the payment of Rs 13.62 lakh. The hotel staff has called him multiple times and he assured that he would make the payment but as of now, his phone is switched off.
