New Delhi, Apr 16: A FIR has been registered against five disciples of Nirmal Baba for allegedly using a forged cheque for withdrawing Rs 1.7 crore from the self-proclaimed Godman's account.
A case was registered against Inderjit Singh Anand, his wife Poonam, their sons Ajay Anand and Harish Anand and a family friend by the police after a complaint was filed by a manager in Punjab National Bank. The accused have been booked under various counts of impersonation, forgery, fraud and conspiracy.
"They deposited the cheque in February. After the initial investigation the police found that the cheque as submitted by Inderjit Singh was duplicate, since a cheque with the same number was lying in Nirmal Baba’s cheque book," said the police.
"The police are working on various theories to find out the truth. Even the genuineness of the signatures of Nirmal Baba is being looked into," said Ishwar Singh, police commissioner.
