Highly expensive watches which could be used for video recording, fancy SUVs, toy pistols, spy equipment and bank drafts worth nearly Rs 20 crore have been seized from the 'Stock Guru Scam' couple.
With the recent recovery from Ratnagiri and Mumbai in Maharashtra, Delhi Police have so far attached properties and seized articles worth Rs 83 crore from the couple alleged to have committed a fraud of Rs 500 crore by cheating over two lakh people by luring them to invest in their firm promising high returns.
Ulhas Prabhakar Khaire (33) and his 30-year-old wife Raksha J Urs were arrested from Ratnagiri earlier this month and police had recovered 12 properties -- including eight flats in Dwarka in Delhi, and luxury vehicles worth over 60 crores.
"After their arrest and interrogation, we have recovered bank drafts worth Rs 19.96 crore and a land which they had bought. We have also seized high-valued watches and seven vehicles from their possession from Ratnagiri," Sandeep Goel, Joint Commissioner of Police, Economic Offences Wing, Crime Branch, told a press conference here today.
He said Khaire and Urs had cheated several people in Ratnagiri as well by launching four new companies that dealt with various trade, including training people to get into the tinsel world.
"They had offices there and we could recover a lot of items like 20 contact lens which he used to cheat various people by changing his looks. We also found spy cameras, mobile jammers and other equipment from his properties and rented premises," he said.
Goel said the couple had finalised the script and director for producing a Marathi movie and had advertised that they would train actors and actresses.
