Anti-Corruption Bureau Seizes 1.85 Crore Rupees from Beed Police Inspector’s Residence

Pune: On Wednesday, May 15, the Anti-Corruption Bureau of Beed searched the Police Inspector of Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of Beed, Haribhau Khade’s house in Chanakyapuri, with the permission of the court. In this action, ACB seized 1,08,00,000 rupees in cash, 970 grams of gold worth Rs 72 lakh, and 5.5 kg of silver worth Rs 4,62,000, a total of Rs 1,85,00,000 from his house.

Apart from this movable property, the ACB has also seized documents for the flats in Baramati and Indapur in the name of Khade, a commercial property in Indapur, and two flats in Baramati and Parli. Haribhau Khade, a police inspector of the Financial Offences Branch of Beed, was booked for demanding Rs 1 crore from a builder to not lodge a case against him in the Jijau Multistate crime that took place in Beed last year.

In this case, Kushal Pravin Jain was arrested on Wednesday while taking a bribe. Further, police inspector Khade and assistant inspector Ravibhushan Jadhvar, who encouraged Khade to take bribes, have been absconding since Jain’s arrest by the ACB on Wednesday. In the pecuniary action, an immediate suspension action has been taken against both of them. This action was taken by the ACB of Beed on Wednesday (15) evening at Subhash Road in Beed city.

The house of Assistant Inspector Ravibhushan Jadhvar was also searched on Wednesday night. In this action, police seized 15 thousand rupees in cash and 25 tolas of gold. Meanwhile, the court has remanded Khade’s assistant trader, Kushal Jain, to police custody.

What was the case, actually?

Last year, a 100-crore scam took place at Jijau Multistate Credit Institution in Beed City. In this case, a complaint has been filed against four people, including the chief of the credit institution, Baban Shinde, President Anita Shinde, Manager Sunita Vandhre, and others. This case has been investigated by Police Inspector Khade of the Economic Offences Branch.

In the investigation, Khade found that Baban Shinde had paid Rs 60 lakh to two businessmen for supplying construction materials. Therefore, the investigation of these two professionals was going on. To avoid implication in the crime, police inspector Khade brazenly demanded a total of 50 lakh each from these builders.

In the compromise, both accused agreed to pay Rs 30 lakh to avoid arrest. Accordingly, cloth merchant Kushal Jain was asked by Khade to take payment from the accused. However, Jain was caught red-handedly by the Beed ACB while taking the first instalment of Rs 5 lakh from the accused. Following the apprehension of Jain, Police Inspector Khade and Assistant Faujdar Ravibhushan Jadwar absconded, and police have started a search operation for them.
