Based on the information provided by Geetha, Thayamma, on June 25 was waiting for the man Geetha had told at the City Bus Stand and the man, who approached her at about 12 noon, took her near a Bank close to Gandhi Square and told her that today was the last day to apply for the job for which she has to deposit Rs. 3,000 cash to the Bank account.
