“Former Shiv Sena MLA Meets EOW Joint Commissioner Regarding Rs 1000 Crore Stockbroker Scam Case”

Former MLA and Deputy Leader and Spokesperson of Shiv Sena, Krishna Hegde, met with Joint Commissioner Nishith Mishra last week to discuss the ongoing Bliss Consultants Rs 1000 crore stockbroker scam case. This case involves the disappearance of stockbrokers Ashesh Mehta and Shivangi Lad Mehta, who have been untraceable for the last three months after allegedly absconding with over Rs 1000 crores of public funds.

During the meeting, Hegde provided further details to the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) and Joint Commissioner Nishith, who also convened with his officers to determine the next steps in the investigation. It’s worth noting that the EOW has taken charge of the case after an initial FIR was registered by Hegde at Amboli Police Station.

Prompt action by the Mumbai Police has already resulted in the freezing of Rs 165 crores of public money held in the accounts of Bliss Consultants. This sum includes Rs 160 crores in Kotak Bank and Rs 5 crores in Zerodha Trading.

Joint Commissioner Nishith Mishra assured that the EOW is committed to swift and thorough action. He stated, “I cannot divulge all details now. The main objective is to provide justice to the nearly 4000 investors who have suffered losses due to the scam and help them recover their hard-earned money.”

Krishna Hegde urged all affected investors to come forward and formally register their complaints and FIRs with the police or the Economic Offences Wing of the Mumbai Police across the country. He emphasized the importance of taking immediate action to safeguard their investments.

Hegde also noted that a lookout notice has already been issued for the Mehta couple, thanks to the intervention of Chief Minister Eknath Shinde. Hegde further stated that he had recently met and briefed the Chief Minister on his meeting with EOW officers.

In conclusion, Hegde urged caution against investing in schemes that promise high returns without proper security measures, citing the suffering inflicted upon over 4000 investors by the Mehta couple and their associates in this alleged Ponzi scheme. He stressed the importance of reporting such schemes to authorities and not speculating while seeking to recover lost funds.
