Additional Sessions Judge V B Kulkarni on Monday granted ad-interim anticipatory bail to three officials of Gokhale Institute of Politics and Economics (GIPE) in connection with the alleged financial irregularities in the salary of the employees of the institute.
Suresh Kamble, a former employee, had filed a case on January 10 against officiating director of GIPE Rajas Parchure (53), former registrar Rangasami Nagrajan (48), and Milind Deshmukh (48), secretary of the society, alleging that the institute was drawing salary in the name of an employee who had left the institute in 2009.
Judicial Magistrate (first class) S S Bose has ordered the Deccan Gymkhana police to investigate the alleged fraud.
According to Kamble's complaint, Pramod Narayan Joshi joined the institute as information scientist in 2006 and served till September 30, 2009 on contract basis. But after Joshi left, the GIPE administration allegedly forged documents to receive salary on Joshi's behalf and showed he was working as a key-punch operator in the institute between October 1, 2009 and March 31, 2010 and between April 3 and May 31, 2010.
