The people of Goa not supposed to be taking the lessons from the previous experience. The case of Kamaxi Forex which shook the state of Goa few moths ago has not yet faded away from the media and another case of cheating to the tune of several crores of rupees has come up in the local media. According to the sources, the directors of a financial company has decamped with the 7.5 crore rupees of around 150 innocent investors in South Goa. The said company was run by the accused Rajesh Kamble and his wife Vidya along wth two more directors, said the sources.
The EOC (Economic Offences Cell) has booked the case of cheating against the four accused, Rajesh Kamble, Vindya Kamble, Amol Shah and Ajay Prabhudesai for cheating the 150 investors to the tune of Rs. 7.5 crore. The sources in the police have confirmed that, the prime accused Kamble has managed to escape out of India and his wife Vidya is presently absconding. The remaining two accused, Amol Shah and Ajay Prabhudesai are cooling their heels in the jail at Pune, said the sources.
The Goa police have finally issued the look out a notice for the prime accused Kamble who has supposed to have escaped out of the country. According to the sources, the financial consultancy firm of Kamble, Evolve Consultancy has reportedly cheated around 150 investors to the tune of around 7.5 crores. According to police, the lookout circular has been issued against Kamble at the immigration check posts across the country. Kamble is said to have fled to a foreign country, Cyprus and in case he enters India (via air), he will be detained at the airport, police said.
Goa Police has also issued the look out notice against the wife of the accused who is presently absconding. All the accused originally belongs to Pune city where the two accused Amol Shah and Ajay Prabhudesai are lodged into custody by Pune police. The sources have said that the firm was not having any permission to accept the deposits and investment and it was the nonbanking financial company.
The police have made the Rajesh Kamble as main accused and remaining four as co-accused in this case and the offense was registered against all the accused under the sections of cheating, criminal conspiracy, criminal breach of trust and Goa protection of the interest of depositors (in financial establishments) Act. According to the sources, the said firm was in operation at Margao in south Goa since the year 2012 and the same was reportedly been closed down on the year 2016. The firm had its head office in Pune, said the police sources.
It is highly shocking that despite its illegal operations the firm was operating in Goa for more than 4 years without any scrutiny. It makes one thing clear that unless people gets duped there is no action of whatsoever has been taken against such firms since there exists no government machinery to do the same. It only when people gets duped and the accused manages to escape from the scene the job of police and other government machinery starts. Otherwise how it is possible that one particular firm accepts the deposits and investments without the legal permissions for four years?
