Police crime branch on Monday arrested a person and his wife for duping crores of rupees from the farmers by taking bank loans after mortgaging papers of their land on Friday. The accused had promised the farmers to buy their lands but they took loan after manipulating and preparing forged documents.

Senior Superintendent of Police Ruchi Vardhan Mishra said a farmer named Mukesh Kalota had lodged a complaint with crime branch officials that his son is suffering from a cancer so he wanted to sell his land. He was contacted by Sanjay Dwiwedi from Ms Venkatesh Silicon and Infrareal India Pvt Ltd who showed interest in buying Kalota’s land.

After deal of Rs 4.76 crore, Kalota signed the agreement papers in February 2016 when Dwiwedi gave him 32 lakh (Rs 1 lakh cash and rest amount in two cheques. Dwiwedi had given three cheques of Ratnakar Bank Limited for rest amount but three cheques bounced.

Sanjay Dwiwedi and his family members had prepared document of land after misleading Kalota and managed to sanction two loans of Rs 2.50 crore for two companies. Dwiwedi had taken the signature of Kalota at registrar office saying that he is buying his land. Somehow, the accused had taken original papers and registry papers of land from Kalota. The papers were in English language and Kolota doesn’t know English so the accused managed to fool him.

The loan was sanctioned for two companies of accused named Ms Amitay Trading Company (proprietor Amit Dwiwedi and Rohit Sharma) and Ms Shri Vyankatesh Project Company (Proprietor Amit Dwiwedi).  Land owner Mukesh Kalota wanted to sell his land not to mortgage it but the accused used his land documents in the bank and took loan misleading him. To gain Kalota’s trust, accused Sanjay Dwiwedi’s friends Rajesh Shukla, Amit Dwiwedi, Vijay Dwiwedi and Rohit Sharma had also signed the papers of deed of guarantee at MP Finance Corporation office. The accused had also provided wrong information to MPFC about Amitay Trading Company.

The incident came to light when complainant Kalota had received a notice for recovery from Madhya Pradesh Finance Corporation.  ASP Singh said that some other victims have also complained against the accused for the same crime. The accused had taken loans from MPFC, Bank of India in Mumbai, Bank of India, Andhra Bank, Punjab National Bank and State Bank of India in Indore.

During investigation it was revealed that Samarth Infrabuild Private Limited of Sanjay Dwiwedi has taken the bank loans from Bank of India (Tardev Road Mumbai) of Rs 6.52 crore, 13 crore and Rs 15 crore. A sum of Rs 8.75 crore is outstanding of SBI and Rs 2.70 crore is the outstanding loan of Bank of Baroda. Seven companies are registered in the name of Sanjay’s wife Neha Dwiwedi.

Betma police station staff registered a case under Sections 420, 120-B, 406, 467, 468, 471 of IPC against Sanjay Dwiwedi, Amit Dwiwedi, Vijay Dwiwedi, Rohit Sharma, Rajesh Shukla, Neha Dwiwedi and others. The further investigation is underway.
