New Delhi:

A former MP was allegedly cheated of Rs 35.10 lakh by his guards, Delhi Police said on Wednesday.

According to a complaint filed by the former MP, he has undergone bypass surgery in the past and has three aides – Aditya Dubey, his father Sunil Dubey and Manoj Shah – for his help.

Aditya mainly manages his banking affairs and carries out other responsibilities in Patna. Manoj was doing manual banking work and other errands, including renting out agricultural land for cultivation, while Sunil was looking after the complainant, the former MP said in the FIR.

The complainant told the police that he was a former MLA and former MLA from Sikta assembly constituency in West Champaran in Bihar.

The former MP further said that on February 18, he received an SMS regarding a transaction of Rs 18,396.

He told police his cell phone was with his security guard who informed him of the transaction.

“The same message was shown to Aditya but he refused for any such transaction to take place. I have never used any online payment method so this created suspicion. I visited Delhi with my grand- nephew Rohit Verma, to visit a bank in Parliament Street to meet the branch manager,” he said in the FIR.

“I asked my grandnephew to register an FIR when he received a call from Aditya Dubey who confessed to his crime of making a withdrawal of Rs 1.25 lakh and asked not to prosecute of FIR. But then he deleted all chats,” the FIR read.

He further told the police that Manoj was also involved in the case. A total amount of Rs 35,10,717 lakh was embezzled by Aditya and Manoj.

On December 22, Parliament Street cyber police registered the FIR under sections 408 (criminal breach of trust by clerk or employee), 420 (cheating or fraud) and 120B (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code, it said the police.

“Further investigation is underway. Our teams are verifying all documents related to the fraud and the accused will be arrested soon,” said a senior police official.
