A case has been filed against top Mumbai doctors Dr Suresh Advani, a Padma Bhushan Awardee and Dr Suresh Takalkar, the owner of CIIGMA hospital in Aurangabad, for allegedly converting black money into white at the Vaidyanath Urban Cooperative Bank case.
Dr Suresh Advani who is currently associated with a hospital in Mumbai is one of the top oncologists in the state. CBI on Friday conducted raids at 11 premises of Vaidyanath Urban Cooperative Bank in Maharashtra in connection with recovery of Rs 10 crore demonetised notes. Following which, two bank managers of Vaidyanath Urban Cooperative Ban, Vipin Shah and Shirish Thigle were arrested.
It was found out that the bank was involved in the conversion of black money owned by doctors into white. Officials of Vaidyanath Cooperative Bank , started by prominent BJP leader, Gopinath Munde came under the Income Tax lens after Mumbai Police had seized Rs 10.10 crore from a car in Tilak Nagar area on December 15.
In its initial investigation, the Income Tax department found out that the entire amount of Rs 25 crore seized was actually black money in demonetised currency which was being transported to get it changed into legal tender.
Both the accused managers had illegally transported the money to Mumbai from Beed in Aurangabad. Investigations also revealed that of the said amount, a sum of Rs 15 crore was allegedly deposited with Maharashtra State Urban Co-operative Bank. After the revelation of deposits of black money in the bank, Pritam Munde, BJP MP and sister of Maharashtra minister Pankaja Munde, and the director of the bank had claimed that the money was not black money and was only being taken from one branch of the bank to another.
Ever since the officials of Vaidyanath Urban Cooperative Bank were ousted, various cases have been registered against people in Mumbai, Pune, Aurangabd and Beed.
Notably, the Prime Minister’s office has an important role to play in the increasing number of raids by the Income Tax department.
According to sources, 80 percent of the investigations carried out by the IT Department until now have been carried out on the basis of tip-offs received by the Prime Minister’s office.
Ever since Prime Minister Narendra Modi on November 8 announced the decision to demonetise higher currency notes, the Prime Minister’s office has received over 600 calls providing information about the black money being hidden by people. The information is immediately noted down and sent to the Income Tax Department or the Enforcement Directorate. ( ABP News)
