Mumbai Bank has been raised with immense hard work of common men. The common Mumbaikars’ deposits are with the bank even today. However the bank is besieged with the fraud worth crores of rupees. The leaders including those belonging to BJP and Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) are involved in this mega fraud. That is the reason, the police are scared to register the offence against the main accused, the leader of the Opposition in the legislative council Pravin Darekar, AAP (Maharashtra) Secretary Dhananjay Shinde said.
Special auditor of the Cooperative department Nilesh Nailk audited the bank’s accounts for the period 2014-2015 to 2019-2020 and submitted the report. A Rs 2000 crore fraud took place in the bank, he noted in his report. Based on the audit report a complaint was lodged with the Mata Ramabai Ambedkar police station (Fort). It is nearly a month now after the complaint was lodged.
Besides Naik, Dhananjay Shinde has also lodged the complaint. However the police have not registered the offence against the accused in the matter. Shinde has also written a letter to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray about this. He also met Mumbai Police Commissioner Sanjay Pandey about the matter 5 to 6 times. But no action has been taken yet.
The bank has advanced loans to the relatives and companies linked to MLA Prasad Lad, Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil, Unmesh Patil, Sudhir Mungantiwar, Bacchu Kadu, Raosaheb Danve Patil, Dilip Valse-Patil and Sadabhau Khot. It is suspected that these loans were advanced in violation of regulations. As such the immediate inquiry should be held into this corrupt affair, Advocate and social worker Dilip Inkar said.
“A prompt action was taken against those attacking the house of Sharad Pawar .The action was also taken against those involved in the Hanuman Chalisa row at Matoshree. Then how Pravin Darekar responsible for swindling crores of rupees of Mumbai Bank is still scot free?”
