Gujarat clerk embezzled Rs 11.60 cr in six weeks only.

Police said he was planning to flee the country with his family, and his booty, and was arrested from Mumbai where he had gone to seek appointment for a US visa interview.
Gandhi Nagar: He became a crorepati in six weeks. His fall came as swiftly. Paresh Panchal, appointed as a temporary government clerk, was arrested from Goregaon in Mumbai by the Gandhi Nagar district police for embezzlement of Rs 11.60 crore. The money was meant as grants to set up tribal schools in Gujarat.
Police said he was planning to flee the country with his family, and his booty, and was arrested from Mumbai where he had gone to seek appointment for a US visa interview.
Sharad Singhal, SP, Gandhi Nagar, said Panchal (28) was in charge of accounts at the Eklavya Education Trust and diverted to his personal Dena Bank account the money given as grants for the State Tribal Department’s Eklavya Model Residential Schools. “He diverted the money by forging cheques issued for tribal schools running under the trust. We have seized 96 per cent of the money, which also includes 15 kg gold,” Singhal added. He also bought three flats in Mumbai and a Wagon R car, Singhal said.
Panchal was appointed barely a month-and-a-half back on a salary of Rs 7,000 for the government-run trust. He quit the job and had planned to flee to US with his wife and parents when the case was busted. He was arrested on January 19, three days after the FIR was filed in Gandhi Nagar.

Bhopal: DUPLEX bungalows, agriculture land, commercial and residential plots, a hotel and a hostel were among 25 properties a government official admitted to owning during a raid by the Lokayukta Police Thursday.
Though the Lokayukta Police refused to publicly evaluate the total worth of the properties owned by Deputy Commissioner (Revenue) Ravikant Dwiwedi , privately they said the market value at the current rate could easily exceed Rs 50 crore.
Dwiwedi was at his home in Gulmohar Colony in Bhopal when the raids were carried out at his residential and commercial properties in and around the capital. The senior revenue officer, who had joined the state administrative service in 1987, tried to throw his weight around and refused to cooperate.
At one point he closeted himself in a room, saying he would not open it come what may. The official had served as deputy collector in some districts and was also posted at the state textbook corporation.  He owns more than two printing presses in Govindpura in the name of his relatives.
Lokayukta SP Siddharth Chaudhary said several complaints had been received against Dwiwedi for amassing properties in his and his family members names, most of them in posh and commercial localities in Bhopal. He owns a hotel in M P Nagar and a brick unit in Mandideep
