According to the police, Swapnil Bhumkar had sought a loan of Rs 65 lakh by keeping his ownership flat as mortgage. He had applied for a loan through loan advisor Pravin Shinde. Bhumkar had also submitted IT returns to the bank. After checking the papers, the bank had given him a loan of Rs 65 lakh.
Branch Manager Amitabh Kumar was searching for the property of another person, Vishnu Ghuge who had taken a housing loan. He found that the property on which Ghuge had taken a loan, belonged to someone else. Kumar found that Ghuge had submitted fake documents in the bank.
When it was checked through whom Ghuge had submitted the documents, they found that he had submitted them through Pravin Shinde. Later, all loan proposals submitted by Shinde were checked and it was found that Bhumkar had submitted fake IT returns. It was also found that the saving account statement of Axis Bank submitted by him was false.
Another person, Nandkumar Ramchandra Nimbalkar, who had taken a loan, had also submitted fake documents. Swapnil Bhumkar had transferred Rs 2 lakh 42 thousand 500 into the current account of Aditya Agro Processed Food Industries owned by Nimbalkar.
After the bank realised that Swapnil Bhumkar had submitted fake documents, the bank, according to the rules, classified his property as NPA and has taken its symbolic possession.
A complaint of fraud of Rs 65 lakh has been submitted at the Wakad police station.
