It was supposed to be Kerala’s big moment under the smartphone sun. There were full page advertisements in all top Malayalam dailies, and there were web reports calling it the new “iPhone killer”.

But Mango Phone, or mPhone, got peeled on the day of its launch with promoters Anto Augustine, 32, and Josekutty Augustine, 24, both brothers from Kalpetta in Wayanad district, getting arrested for allegedly duping the Kalamassery branch of Bank of Baroda. They were arrested from the venue of the big ticket launch in Kochi.

Police claim the two had defrauded many banks, and were arrested for submitting false land documents for a loan and had been absconding for almost a year.
