Mumbai Crime Branch sleuths have busted a gang and have arrested five people allegedly instrumental in procuring loan from a bank by submitting bogus and fake documents.
Those arrested were identified as - Romi Rajan Kapoor alias Koushik Kumar Kaustubh Nath, 41, Saket Ashok Dikshit, 34, Vishal Tarkeswar Tiwari, 41, Gignesh Jitendra Rajani, 31, and Vikas Bhasker Dongare, 34.
The Kandivali Unit of Crime Branch had received specific information that a gang instrumental in submitting fake documents and procuring loan from banks is active in the city.
“We first picked up Romi Kapoor and from his possession we found two PAN Cards, Aadhar Cards and Driving Licenses with different names but having his photographs. During questioning he revealed that he had kept those ID cards to seek loan from bank. We then got a case of cheating, forgery and criminal conspiracy registered in the matter at Oshiwara Police Station and took over the investigations of the case,” said police inspector Chimaji Aadav.
He added, Kapoor during the questioning also revealed that two other members of the gang were bank agents and they helped in getting fake documents made so that
the process of securing loan from the banks becomes easy.
“Kapoor had recently secured three loans of Rs 59 lakh, Rs 29 lakh and Rs 21 lakh from a bank by submitting fake documents and duped the bank. Investigation has further revealed that Kapoor has committed a fraud worth crores of rupees in the city of Kolkata as well. With Kapoor as our bait, we managed to arrest the remaining members of the gang in due course. The arrested people will be in Crime Branch custody until October 3,” Aadav further added.
