However, Abhishek, later informed the woman that there was a change in his programme as his ship was attacked and damaged by Somalian sea-pirates, and thus, to save his personal belongings he had dispatched them to the her address, police said.

He also told her that he had paid the air freight in advance, but a remaining amount of USD 1,450 had to be paid by them, they said.

The complainant was informed that the consignment had reached the Chhatarpati Shivaji International Airport in Mumbai.

The complainant paid Rs 1,92,083, Rs 4,96,700, Rs 7.50 lakh and Rs 1 lakh in the name of the air-freight carrier, difference settlement, Income Clearance, United Nation Clearance and Immigration Fee to be paid to the US Government for transit passport respectively, police said.
