The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has busted a racket of imposters and arrested 4 persons for allegedly attempting to cheat certain people by assuring them Rajya Sabha births for ₹100 crore which also includes one from Belagavi, namely Ravindra Vithal Naik.
According to the first information report (FIR), filed on July 15, those named include Kamalakar Premkumar Bandgar of Maharashtra’s Latur, Ravindra Vithal Naik of Karnataka’s Belagavi, and Delhi-NCR-based Mahendra Pal Arora, Abhishek Boora and Mohammed Aijaz Khan.
Bandgar is said to have requested Boora, Arora, Khan, and Naik to bring any job that he could repair in exchange for payment of enormous illegal gratuity while appearing as a senior CBI officer and flaunting his “connections” with high-ranking authorities.
They conspired with “the sole ulterior motive of cheating private persons by falsely assuring them for arrangement of seats in Rajya Sabha, appointment as governor, appointment as chairman in different government-run organisations under central government ministries and departments against huge pecuniary consideration,” the FIR alleged.
According to the FIR, it came to light that the accused were trying to defraud people by falsely promising them a seat in the Rajya Sabha in exchange for a significant sum of money totaling ₹100 crores.
