The fraudster Sandeep Mehta alias Sandy, who started the practice of defrauding the farmers of Himachal Pradesh, had made property worth crores in Mumbai and other cities with the money of cheating. This has come to the fore in the interrogation of the SIT of the CID constituted to investigate the case of fraud from the farmers. He was questioned for several hours on Tuesday.
Since the Solan Court has given six days police remand of the accused to the CID, the authorities are trying to get as much information as possible from the accused during this period. Originally from Kotkhai, Sandy started working as an agent in Solan and between 2015 and 2018 handed over checks for payment to several farmers, which later bounced.
After grabbing an amount of about five to six crores from the farmers and commission agents, in the year 2018, he escaped from Himachal after wrapping up his entire work and settled in Mumbai. In 2019, when the SIT of the CID started investigating the fraud cases, Sandeep’s troubles increased.
The court of Solan has given six days police remand of the accused to the CID, so the officers are trying to get as much information as possible from the accused during this period.
