new Delhi. Nearly 2.5 crore rupees have been duped from Mukta Bobde, mother of Supreme Court Chief Justice Sharad Arvind Bobde. According to the news, this cheating was done by none other than him but his caretaker. After the matter came to light, accused Tapas Ghosh was arrested on Tuesday night. Giving information about the case, Nagpur Police Commissioner (CP) Amitesh Kumar said that a Special Investigation Team (SIT) under the supervision of DCP Vinita Sahu is investigating the matter. Mukta Bobde, mother of CJI SA Bobde, is the mistress of Seedan Lawn, located near Akashwani Square, which is rented out for marriages and other functions.
The Bobde family appointed Tapas Ghosh as caretaker of Seedan Lawn in 2007. He used to get commission on booking in addition to salary. Taking advantage of Mukta Bobde’s age and health, Tapas Ghosh and his wife manipulated money transactions. According to CP Amitesh Kumar of Nagpur Police, Tapas Ghosh made the booking but did not give his money to the Bobde family, with Tapas allegedly giving fake receipts to several customers. CP Amitesh Kumar of Nagpur Police said the fraud was revealed during the lockdown when several bookings were canceled, but people did not get their refunds.
Mukta Bobde filed a fraud complaint in August following a complaint from customers. On this, a SIT was formed by the officials of Economic Offenses Wing. CP Amitesh Kumar said that Tapas has not even paid the bills for solar system installation and some construction work. SIT had questioned Tapas Ghosh during his investigation. Late Tuesday, SIT officials registered a case against Tapas Ghosh and his wife under Section 409 (criminal breach of trust), 420 (cheating) and 467 (forgery) of the city at Sitabardi police station in the city and arrested Tapas Ghosh. .
