NSEL case: Police seek documentation from investors

As part of its long probe into the Rs 5,600-crore National SPot Exchange (NSEL) scam, the city police’s economic offences wing (EOW) is verifying facts about some of the investors, the original complainants.

It has asked some of them for copies of their Know Your Customer details, contract notes, book of accounts, warehouse receipts and so on.

The EOW is presently working on its second chargesheet in the case. Jignesh Shah, chairman and group chief executive of Financial Technologies (FT), the parent firm, and Shreekant Javalgekar, former managing director of Multi Commodity Exchange, had been arrested in the case on May 7. The chargesheet must be filed within 90 days of the arrest; else, they’re eligible for bail.

EOW has also been calling some of the major brokers involved, for their books of accounts.

The investors had filed a complaint in September last year against the NSEL board, FT, 24 borrowers and 200 brokers. So far, EOW has attached movable and immovable properties of directors and promoters of NSEL, of FT and the borrowers, among others. It has also sent a list of the attached properties of a few leading borrowers, for auctioning, to the authority concerned.
