Over a year after the registration of fraud and bungling case against Jain family for allegedly embezzling government paddy from Veeru Mal Mulkh Raj Rice Mill at Jandiala Guru, the cantonment police on Sunday booked Sudhir Jain, one of the directors of the firm, on charges of fraud, forgery and criminal conspiracy.

The case was registered following a complaint lodged by the manager of State Bank of India, Jandiala Guru Branch. According to the police, the accused took a loan to the tune of Rs 3.75 crore from the bank after forging documents.

Besides Sudhir Jain, the police also booked Mayur Goyal, a resident of East Delhi, who is a senior bank employee of Punjab National Bank in the case registered under Sections 406, 408, 409, 420, 465, 467, 468, 471 and 120-B of the IPC.

The complainant alleged that the accused forged the property papers of one Shubheg Singh. During investigation, it was found that Sudhir Jain had taken a loan on the property of Shubheg Singh and when he was asked he feigned ignorance about this.

The police said further investigations were underway. Sudhir Jain was already absconding in the paddy scam being investigated by the Vigilance Bureau while raids were on to nab Mayur Goyal in the case.
