GM, Directors of Coop Society cheat man of Rs 54.50 lakh in bogus loan deal

Nagpur: Tehsil police have booked General Manager, Chairman, Secretary and nine directors of Bharatiya Apanga Cooperative Society on the charges of cospiracy and cheating a senior citizen to the tune of whopping Rs 54.50 lakh in a bogus loan deal.

All the accused approached the complainant Satyanarayan Bankatlal Malu (65), resident of 1186, Radhanivas, Bhavsar Square, Gandhibagh, between October 29, 2018 and February 17, 2020. In a well planned cospiracy, the accused won confidence of Malu and ‘assured’ him of providing a big loan through their Society. With this bogus assurance, the accused took Rs 54.50 lakh from time to time onb the pretext of sanctioning the loan. However, neither the loan was given to Malu nor his money returned to Malu by the accused and thus cheated him to the tune of Rs 54.50 lakh.
