Students deprived of admissions, duped of Rs. 6 lakhs

Nagpur News: Three city students were duped of more than Rs. 6 lakhs by self- appointed middlemen who made false promises of getting them admissions in Yashwantrao Chavan College of Engineering (YCCE).

Accused Kalpana Satish Khallase (35), a resident of Gandhinagar, approached Premchandra Indrachandra Mohanani (48) and assured him of admitting his son Sumit to YCCE, in exchange for some fees. Similarly, Sumit’s friends Chetan Jehani and Mohammad Razaq Pasha were also approached by Khallase and her partner Shankar Thorat (45).

The three students paid a total of Rs. 5,86,815 to Khallase in instalments from 11th July to 31st July this year. Thorat also took an additional Rs. 47, 000 from Sumit’s father Premchandra Mohanani. Father- son duo Satish Khallase and Sushrut Satish Khallase also helped dupe the victims by assuring them of having gained admissions from the accused in the past.

When all hope of admissions was lost, the victims confronted Khallase and Thorat, who returned Rs. 4.25lakhs. The accused are now missing, with Rs. 2, 08, 815 still due to the victims.

Based on a filed by Premchandra Indrachandra Mohanani MIDC police have registered a case under sections 420 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), and are in search of the accused.
