According to police sources, despite several attempts, Ganesh could not mobilise funds. “Often, customers interested in his properties offered half the price he quoted citing demonetisation. All attempts to raise funds to repay the mounting debt further made him desperate,” an official attached to the Jayanagar police revealed.
