ACP Vinod Dixit, TI Central Kotwali and his team, and cops from MG Road police stations first reached Badera’s bungalow with a search warrant. No one was there so the police had to break open the lock and search the bungalow.

Some files, passports, two cars (Honda City and a Toyota) and three bank passbooks were recovered from there. Badera’s wife Renu is also among the accused. The couple is on the run after the FIR against them.

Police said that after Badera’s bungalow, the raids were also carried out in about 8 places belonging to accused Jakir, Mohammad Siddique and Mohammad Sajid’s in Madina Nagar area. A computer and some documents were recovered from there. It was believed that more fraud cases would come to fore after the seized materials are checked.

The accused did not do the drainage work and they also got some amount after they filed GST. After that 16 more files were recovered by the police from the IMC office and detected fraud of Rs 20 crores committed by the accused.
