Kharora. A case of fraud worth crores has come to light in the purchase of rice. The police had registered a case on the complaint of Rajendra Agarwal, director of Amit Rice Industries. Two accused in this case, Mumbai residents Rishabh Maurya, Anil Maurya had reached the police station with their lawyers after taking anticipatory bail. Both the accused in the case were saved in the case registered in Tilda, but the case registered in Pandri police station of Raipur sent both of them to jail. On the other hand, Delhi resident Amit Goyal has also been arrested by the local police.
Actually, the matter was about embezzlement of about Rs 4.15 crore in the purchase of rice. The accused were trying to run away abroad after embezzling about 13 crores. The court had issued a notice banning him from going abroad. Two accused in the case had reached Tilda with their lawyers after taking anticipatory bail. Here both were given bail on surety. As soon as the information came, a crowd had gathered in the police station.
A few months ago, Rajendra Kumar Agarwal, director of Amit Rice Industry of Tilda, had complained about fraud in the police station. Amit Goyal, Rishabh Maurya, Anil Maurya, directors of Maharashtra’s rice exporter company Kia Agro, had committed a fraud of Rs 4 crore 14 lakh 78 thousand 34. Due to non-payment of money and misleading even after repeated demands, the applicant had lodged the report. After this, the three accused had applied for anticipatory bail from the Raipur Sessions Court.
It is being told that anticipatory bail was granted on June 2, but he had to be arrested at Tilda police station. The accused had brought a lawyer on their behalf. The lawyer told that 9 crores have been given, the rest of the money will be given slowly. Till then it was said to maintain patience. Amit, the lawyer of the rice industry, said that after repeatedly visiting the house and office of the accused, 9 crore was given and the rest of the money was deliberately hanged with the intention of embezzlement. Otherwise full payment would have been done by now. The accused cheated the court that the foreign company has not given the money, but it is clear from the bank statement that their money has come from Dubai, yet the money was not being given by spoiling the intention.
At present, both the accused who reached Tilda police station with anticipatory bail have been arrested by the Pandri police and produced in the court. Here the bail of both has been rejected and sent to jail for 30 days remand.
