Chennai, Oct 4: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has asked people in Chennai, cheated of their money and property by city-based businessman, Dhanraj Kochar, and his family, to contact it.

The Central government agency had conducted raids at the premises of Kochar and his business establishments on September 29 and 30 and is still continuing with the process of tallying the money and property obtained by his family from gullible people in Chennai.

The agency, in a statement, said that it had conducted raids at six places and made seizures of about Rs 250 crore, including Rs 1.5 crore in cash, gold and diamond jewellery worth Rs 11 crore, and around 150 documents of landed properties.

A total of 40 people have already filed complaints and the ED is expecting more and has called upon other victims to reach out to it.

According to the agency, Kochar and his family members including his three sons, Inderchand, Suresh and Ramesh had conspired and cheated people by offering loans in cash by taking property documents as collateral, along with blank bank cheques.

The Kochar family took general power of attorney in their names and promissory notes, the ED said, adding that their seizure included third-party property documents.

The ED said that irrespective of whether someone had paid the money or not, the Kochars used to transfer the land in their names and the ED received complaints about this and conducted raids.

It also said that the Kochars were charging interest rates of 24 per cent to 48 per cent per annum which was in violation of the Tamil Nadu Prohibition of Charging Exorbitant Interest (TNPCEI) Act.

ED officials said that the department is analysing the full volume of the money and documents seized from the Kochar family in a few days and is expecting more people to approach it.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
