Man flees without paying Rs 12 lakh hotel bill in Hyderabad
HYDERABAD: A man, who stayed in a star hotel in Hyderabad for over 100 days, allegedly fled without paying the Rs 12.34 lakh bill, the police said on Saturday.
Acting on a complaint lodged by the management of Taj Banjara hotel, the police registered a case of cheating and criminal breach of trust against A Shankar Narayan, said to be a businessman from Visakhapatnam.
According to the hotel management, the man stayed in a luxury suite for 102 days. After paying Rs 13.62 lakh out of his total bill of Rs 25.96 lakh, the man allegedly left the hotel in April this year without informing anyone.
The hotel staff then contacted the man who promised to clear the remaining bill. However, he later switched off his phone after which the hotel manager approached the Banjara Hills police station to lodge a complain.
"We have registered a case on the complaint by the hotel management and launched investigations," Sub-Inspector P. Ravi told IANS.

Rambag palace Jaipur Had rooms between 50 K to 150 K, Lake Palace Udaipur has rooms starting at 25 K to 100 K per night, so compare to them Banjara is a cheap 5 star.

13 lakhs, what he paid for 102 days, still works out to 11000 per day, say 6000 for room and 4000 for food per day, still hotel is not under loss, unless he did Champagne, caviar party every night with politicians and officers to win contract.

Was it worth publishing this news?

Difficult to believe this hotel's story.... especially since the person would have settled his dues by credit card on a regular basis of 3 days or weekly billings. Hence he could not incur outstandings of 13 lacs. We should get his side of the story.

Typical con trick by an empty pocket but boasting andhra chor. How come the hotel dint knock on his door to pay up periodically?

The hotel management was foolish to allow the bill to be accumulated. Should have forced dor a weekly settlement

Businessman looks complete genuine in claiming that he settled the bill. All star hotels must have billed or weekly basis. There must have been some agreement between him and hotel management since it was long stay , but hotel declined to stay on the agreements as it is usual Indian hotel policy.,For any hotel in the world if some customers stays there for 100 days and pays 13 lacks ($20k) then he is the prime customer for that hotel ever.

102 days stay costs 25.96 ie, 26 lakhs. 1 year or 365 days stay would cost 93 lakhs ie, nearly 1 crore.
