Bhubaneswar: The Commissionerate police which arrested ‘Golden Baba’ alias Jyotiranjan Beura on January 1 for allegedly duping people and several companies promising them to sanction loans from finance companies, has asked the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of the Crime Branch to investigate his financial transaction.
The agency will also try to extract information regarding his relationship with some political leaders.
The Commissionerate Police today wrote to the Crime Branch, requesting it to grill the fraudster.
Sources said 19 cases have been registered against Golden Baba.
He was arrested by Chandrasekharpur police after a case was filed against him by a mining company. He had lured a mining company named MS National Enterprises to sanction a loan of Rs 110 crores. And accordingly, he had taken 12 cheques with a value of Rs 12.4 crores each from them.
Before the scheduled date, he allegedly changed the date and withdrew cash from the concerned bank. The bank staffs who smelt something fishy, informed the company that a Baba is withdrawing huge amount of cash regularly. And the mining company lodged a plant with police.
When he came to know that a police complaint has been lodged against him, he went to Delhi from where he was nabbed.
