Guna: On the complaint of Govind Kushwah, Guna police registered a case against 6 accused on Sunday for business of lending money on interest illegally.

Govind Kushwah, 50, of Sinchai Colony Guna told the Guna Superintendent of Police Rajiv Kumar Mishra that 8 years back he took money on interest for his daughter’s marriage and for his treatment from Rakesh Dhimar of Colonelganj Guna, Diwan Lodha of Gopalpura, Dashrath Lodha of Gopalpura, Ramesh Kushwah of Gulabganj Cantt, Billu Khan of Colonelganj and Ramprasad Dhimar of of Old Cantonment Guna. In lieu of this, blank cheques and stamps signed by him were taken by them. After this, after selling his house, he returned all the money he had borrowed along with interest in the stipulated time and when he asked for his blank cheques and stamps, they kept delaying and did not return by making excuses.

On the pretext of signed blank cheques and stamps, he was being harassed by them by demanding money frequently and threatening to send him to jail or kill him, the complainant told further. Guna’s SP Mishra heard and understood the grievance of the complainant Govind Kushwah and taking the matter seriously instructed the police to take legal action against them and consequently cases were registered against the 6 accused for collecting money arbitrarily and for doing the business of interest illegally in Guna Cantt police station under relevant sections.

Guna police said that if such cases come to the fore, they will continue taking action against the culprits.
