Pune : NpNews24 Online – Pune Crime News | An incident has come to light wherein the money invested by people in the sub post office was shown as being invested in the main post office and commission was taken and the postal department was cheated of ₹23.76 lakh. (Pune Crime News)
Three FIRs have been registered at Vishrantwadi and Vimantal police stations. Yogesh Nanarsaheb Veer (42), a resident of Khadakmal Ali, has lodged a complaint. An FIR has been registered against Post Master Jyotiram Phulchand Mali (40), a resident of Yevlewadi, of Dighi Sub Post Office, clerk Bhagwan Srirang Naik (36), a resident of Dighi, Dhanori Post Master Ganesh Tanaji Lande (37), a resident of Dhanori, Dhanori Post Master Madhukar Gangadhar Suryawanshi (49), a resident of Dhanori, Ramesh Gulab Bhosale, a resident of Wanawadi and Vilas Dethe (59), a resident of Wanawadi.
According to the police, as per the postal rules, if investors come to a sub post office and invest money, then the post master does not get commission. However, if they invest money in a post office, then the postmaster gets 2 per cent commission. Taking advantage of this rule, 274 investors had invested ₹9.62 crore in the Dighi Sub Post Office from July 16, 2018 to August 21, 2020 in various schemes. It was shown in official records that the money had been invested in Dhanori post office and gave ₹18.35 lakh to Dhanori Post Office. The amount was shared by them. After winning the trust of investors, fake signatures were made and the postal department was cheated.
They accepted ₹2.47 crore from 59 investors through Dunkirk Line and they were forced to open an account in BRD Post Office and took a commission of ₹4.95 lakh. Jyotiram Mal took 75 per cent of the money and gave the remaining amount to BRD branch Post Master Ramesh Bhosale.
When Vilas Dethe was working as sub post master in Viman Nagar sub post office, he had been given the responsibility of accepting money from investors in FD and Sukanya Samruddhi Yojana and making an entry in the passbook and entering the details in the Finnacle software. While depositing money of 19 investors, he did not deposit ₹45,900 in government treasury and cheated the postal department.
