FDR scam in RGPV: Registrar gives false bank statements

Chronicle Reporter, Bhopal,
After a scam of about Rs 20 crore was exposed in Rajiv Gandhi Technological University (RGPV), more details are now being revealed in the case.

The police have started investigation after registering an FIR against the then Registrar Professor RS Rajput, Vice Chancellor Professor Sunil Gupta, Finance Controller Hrishikesh Verma, Mayank Kumar of Beneficiary Dalit Sangh under 420 and other sections. The government has also directed the police to register an FIR in the case of fake bank statements and fake documents.

According to police sources, in this scam, Registrar Rajput and FC Verma, along with Mayank Kumar, made false statements of the bank and showed them to Vice Chancellor Gupta to be deposited in the account of RGPV, while the bank money was being sent to Mayank’s personal accounts. When Vice Chancellor Gupta got information about this, he wrote a letter to the Bank Ombudsman on 19 February asking to take action against RBL. It was written in the letter that instead of depositing the amount in the university’s account, RBL Bank is wrongly depositing the amount in Mayank’s account. On the other hand, RBL Bank also wrote a letter to Habibganj police station to register a case against Mayank. But the Habibganj police station did not take any action.

ABVP state media coordinator Shivam Jat said that only a matter of Rs 19.48 crore has come to light, whereas there has been embezzlement of about Rs 200 crore inside the university, that too should be investigated. It is noteworthy that Minister Parmar has also assured ABVP workers of taking strict action against the culprits.
