Victims say the couple had hired uniformed staff; police recover four more cars
Many people who were tricked by Ulhas Khaire and Raksha, the couple arrested in the Rs 500 crore Stock Guru India scam, say they are shocked at the "perfection" with which they cheated more than 2 lakh investors.
To impress investors, the two had hired around 15 to 20 employees, who were given uniforms to wear during office hours.
Sunil Kumar, on whose complaint a case was registered, told Newsline that till date he never got the opportunity to speak to the couple. "Their office had 2 to 3 floors and the most striking thing was that their staff had a dress code. I went to their office twice and was impressed by the staff. The two accused had cabins and I saw them only from a distance. It was their staff who spoke to me and assured me good returns. Everything inside the office was so systematic that I did not doubt for a moment that they were frauds," he said.
Police have also recovered four more cars — Maruti Swift, Scorpio, Endeavour and a Honda Civic. They were parked in Ashoka Enclave Colony, Dwarka Sector-11. The couple lived in another flat in Sector-18 A and this flat remained locked, police said.
During questioning, Ulhas told police that he had invested most of the money with a Mumbai-based shares trading company. "He did not estimate that he would get so much investment in Delhi. As more people came to him, he got ambitious and hired employees and agents in many states. We are trying to find out the property investments he has made in Delhi, apart from the eight flats in Dwarka," an investigating official said.
Raksha, according to the investigators, was dragged into the world of crime by her husband. In 2005, before their marriage, Ulhas had lied about his identity to Raksha. He told Raksha that he was a businessman from Mumbai who had severed ties with his family and come to Bangalore, police said. It was only later that he told Raksha about his plans to dupe people.
