IG quizzes Anthony in cash seizure case

IG quizzes Anthony in cash seizure case

Tribune News Service

Jalandhar, April 7

The police today questioned Father Anthony Madasserry in a case of seizure of unaccounted cash and allegations of misappropriating by the raiding police team.

IG (Crime) Praveen Sinha, who visited the city today, said, “I met Father Anthony at Partappura for about two hours and questioned those present there. I need at least one week more to work on the case and make a report.”

Sources say more lapses by the raiding police team and bank officials have coming to the fore.

Earlier, the police showed a different location than the actual raid site, it is now known that the 15-member team that raided Father Anthony’s residence was led only by an Inspector-rank officer.

The sources say when they were going back after detaining six persons and recovering Rs 9.66 crore, the convoy got broken on the way, which again makes things fishy. The lapses on the part of the South Indian Bank too cannot be ignored as it sent a peon and a guard to collect a huge amount of cash.

The investigations so far have reportedly pointed out that a bank official was certainly there at the time of the raid. A CCTV footage is learnt to be available with the bank wherein the peon and the gunman are seen returning to the bank soon after the raid. The bank had also collected Rs 10 crore from Anthony’s house a day before.
