The police are on the lookout for Malaysian Big Boss, Tan Chee Keat, and his four fellow nationals.

They have tracked Rs 33 crore that has been generated from thousands of bank accounts in two districts of Saurashtra to Kuala Lumpur.

An FIR has been filed against 15 people, including five Malaysian nationals, following a Chinese national’s alleged scam. As many as 1,175 people in Gujarat were duped of massive amounts in a Ponzi football betting app, a daily reported.

They are facing charges of creating fake accounts in and Veraval districts to launder money through online gaming and betting.

The report added that the Gujarat Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) received information on August 12 that an NRI based in Malaysia, Rohit Vadher, a Malaysian national, Chua Ming Ho alias Robin, along with a resident of Sutrapada in Gir Somnath, Mahek Chhag, were swindling people’s money through gambling and betting apps.

They reportedly created counterfeit bank accounts.

The ATS has identified Chagg and eight people from Veraval and Rajkot who formed a nexus with Vadher and the five Malaysians.

The accused – Chhag, Rajan Jhala, Hiren Vaghela, Imran Theba, Aslamshah Sarvadi, Bhargav Barot, Manthan Vayeda, Ravi Mehta, and Samir Pandya – were summoned to the ATS office in Ahmedabad.

The FIR has details about how Mehta, an employee of HDFC bank, opened 26 accounts, including nine under forged identities to launder money. Chhag reportedly

paid Mehta Rs 1,500 for each account.

Mehta, the report adds, asked Vaghela to maintain the accounts. They agreed to a fee of Rs 2000 per account.

Vadher later forged ties with Aslam Sarvadi, an employee of Kotak Mahindra Bank, who helped him open four bank accounts.

The report mentioned that he allegedly received Rs 15,000 for each account. Vadher’s accomplices Barot and Sarvadi approached Vayeda, an employee of IndusInd bank in Rajkot, and opened seven bank accounts.

The FIR further recorded that Barot also opened one account each in HDFC Bank and ICICI Bank in Rajkot.

The accused also attempted to open 12 accounts in IDBI bank in Rajkot but were unsuccessful. Of 39 bank accounts, they used 26 to launder Rs 33 crore.
