Gwalior: The Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of Gwalior police has seized several documents pertaining to scam in the Chenor branch of Central Cooperative Society. The seized papers relate to sanctioning of loan and farmers’ debt waiver from the branch.

The police have also seized the documents related to the disappearance of Rs 50 lakh from the cooperative.

According to EOW Superintendent of Police OP Mittal, the recovered documents signal the involvement of cooperative officials and workers in the scam and amassing of disproportionate assets by them.

Notably, the EOW last week had raided the Chenor branch and the residence of several cooperative officials including Kalicharan Gautam, Mukesh Mathur and Dwarka Prasad Sharma and two Chartered Accountants.

Three weeks back the police had raided the residence of a cooperative official Balbhadra and seized several documents related to the scam.

The recovered documents have helped the police to probe several bank accounts where the amount relating to the scam could be stashed. The scam in the Chenor branch of Central Cooperative Society is estimated to the tune of Rs 3.5 crore.

The police are trying to piece together the several important documents to unearth the exact amount embezzled in the scam.
