EOC ARRESTED CHETAN DESSAI, BALU PHADKE AND AKBAR MULLA. INVOLVED IN SCAM OF RS 2 CR 87 LAKHS FRAUD IN 2007
The Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of Goa Police had filed an FIR against GCA President Dessai and two other office bearers in connection with a fraud of Rs 3.13 crore in two separate cases.
The FIR was filed after Vilas Desai complained against the GCA president, secretary Phadke and treasurer Akbar Mulla for forging the signatures and opening bank accounts to siphon of money.
The police complaint mentions that the accounts were opened by all three accused between October 23, 2006 and May 23, 2008 when they were not holding official positions. GCA was then headed by Dayanand Narvekar, while Dessai was its secretary and Phadke was its treasurer.
The police complaint mentions that Chetan Dessai, Phadke and Mulla hatched a criminal conspiracy by impersonating and posing as President, Secretary and Treasurer of GCA.
“They prepared forged and fake documents as well as resolution of GCA and submitted it to Development Credit Bank to open an account. The alleged accused then encashed the cheque of Rs 2.87 crore given by Board of Cricket Control of India (BCCI) to GCA,” the complaint said.
