Beltarodi police have filed a case against a woman entrepreneur for allegedly defrauding investors out of crores of rupees under the pretext of offering 30% returns on investments in the tourism sector. Many cases under sections 420 and 138 cases have already been filed against her. The fraud was discovered after a man lost Rs 80 lakh to it and later committed suicide. Rajal Mohit Ved, a resident of Agne Layout in Khamla, is the accused in the case.
According to police, Ashish Marawar (49), a resident of Safalya Heritage near Jayanti Nagari, Besa committed suicide by consuming poison at his home on February 20. Ashish’s family found a suicide note in which Ashish stated that he had made many mistakes in his life and they are not ending. He also wrote that a woman named Rajal Mohit Ved had mentally abused him. So, after being troubled by her, he ends his life.
Ashish used to work in a private company and had known Rajal since then. Rajal used to own a tour and travel company. In exchange, she used to give him a 30% profit on resort and tour package investments. The woman lured him once more and demanded a large sum of money. As a result, Marawar Marawar invested around Rs 80 lakh with the accused woman. When Marawar asked for a profit, Rajal began making excuses. She even refused to return the capital investment amount; Marawar was frustrated due to fraud.
Meanwhile, Sadar police have filed a case of fraud against Rajal for defrauding minning businessman Vijay Khandelwar (50), a Pagalkhana Square resident, of Rs. 29 lakh. Rajal allegedly demanded Rs. 1 lakh in bail from Marawar. She also threatened to deposit the Rs 80 lakh cheque with the police if he did not pay the money. Soon after, the woman began to harass Marawar. He committed suicide because he was fed up with the harassment.
Police have filed a case against Rajal Ved under Section 306 of the IPC and are investigating the matter further.
