Hyderabad: Senior Congress leader Mohd Shabbir Ali, retired IPS officer A.K Khan and his son Mohsin Khan, have been booked by Hyderabad police in a cheating case. A K Khan is currently the advisor to the government of Telangana on Minority affairs.
Following a direction from a local court in Hyderabad, Punjagutta police booked the trio under section 465, 420, 406 of Indian Penal Code and r/w 156(3) Cr.PC. Complainant Mohammed Abdul Wahab, (51yrs) a businessman by occupation, moved the court after he suffered a loss of Rs 90lakh.
What is the crime?
The crime dates back to 2016, when retired IPS Officer A K Khan's son Mohsin Khan approached complainant Mohammed Abdul Waha, citing that he (Mohsin) is the managing director Ms. Sunlit Mines Pvt Ltd, located at Banjara Hills road no-1. The company is engaged in mining activity. Mohsin, in addition told Abdul that he had obtained a license for another company-Tapaswi Infra Pvt Limited, engaged in de-casting of sand in land covering 46 acres in Ramanujavaram Village of Khammam district of Telangana.
Mohsin told Abdul that, Tapaswi Infra sold 25 % stakes in favor of Sunlit and he anticipated a huge profit in the said de-casting of sand work. Mohsin showed the complainant 'forged documents alleged' as an agreement document with Tapaswi Company.
Mohsin told Abdul that he was expecting a profit of Rs 6.5 Crore and promised to share 50% of his profits, if Abdul invested Rs 90 lakhs in the company. The investment was towards infrastructure to carry out de-casting of sand and mining operations.
According to the complaint, Initially Abdul was hesitant to invest, However Mohsin took him home and introduced him to Congress leader -Shabbir Ali- minister in the united Andhra Pradesh. Mohsin happens to be the son-in-law of Shabbir Ali.
Believing that he was the son of a senior IPS officer who earlier served as the commissioner of police - Hyderabad and the son-in-law of a former minister, Abdul invested Rs 90 lakhs in the business. The money was transferred to Sunlit Private limited's account.
However, for over three years beginning 2016, Mohsin failed to pay profits to Abdul. Frustrated over the delay, Abdul insisted for the amount, in contrast to which Mohsin threatened him citing the names of Shabbir Ali and A. K Khan.
Retired IPS Officer A K Khan's role in the crime
Years passed by and Mohsin failed to pay Abdul any profits, Further he took Abdul to his father- retired IPS officer A K Khan. Initially A K Khan assured him that the responsibility would be his if there was any default in payments. However five years later, Shabbir Ali and Senior Khan refused to settle the amount.
Abdul knocked the court door over forgery and breach of trust. Following a court's petition, a case has been registered against Shabbir Ali, A K Khan, Mohsin Khan and Sunlit Mines Pvt Ltd.
