Haryana: Ponzi scheme accused FIRed for fake Covid report | Chandigarh News


PANCHKULA: A special PMLA (Prevention of Money Laundering Act) court has ordered an FIR be registered against a ponzi scheme case accused for submitting a fake Covid positive report to seek exemption from hearings in the case. Dr Sushil Kumar Garg, special judge under PMLA, Haryana, cancelled the bail of Ram Singh, the accused, too.
The directions were issued on July 20 during the ongoing case of the enforcement directorate in which it had on January 23 filed a prosecution complaint — equivalent to a police charge-sheet — against two directors Radhe Shyam and Bansi Lal of Hisar-based multi-level marketing (MLM)-scheme promoting companies Future Maker Lifecare Private Limited and FMLC Global Marketing Private Ltd in the case. Around 31 lakh investors were cheated by the companies through the ponzi scheme involving a fraud of around Rs 3,000 crore.
The ED had filed the prosecution complaint seeking punishment to the accused and confiscation of attached assets of Rs 261.35 crore. The investigating officer had issued summons to Ram Singh. He had then sent an e-mail on July 18, attaching a report of July 17 issued by Manglam Diagnostics, Jindal, Hospital Road, Hisar, mentioning he had tested positive for Covid. On inquiry from the centre, it was revealed Ram Singh had never tested positive rather it had issued the report showing him negative for Covid.

The court order stated, “…since Ram Singh has intentionally avoided his appearance before this court by moving instant application on false ground and with medical report which appears to be forged, the application moved by him seeking his exemption from personal appearance is rejected. His bail is cancelled. His bail and surety bonds stand forfeited to the state and his presence be secured through warrant of arrest for August 25.”
