Jamshedpur: The management of a Lucknow-based paint company filed a case against four of its employees charging them with duping the company of Rs 56 lakh. Mohan Paints, the Lucknow-based company, had filed a case in this regard and the police have completed their investigation. The four accused are yet to be arrested.
The mastermind of the four accused is reportedly one employee identified as Vimlesh Pathak, who has been working for several years as in charge of the company’s depot in Adityapur.
According to reports, Pathak recruited three other employees — Jitendra Jha, Sarvesh Kumar and Ved Pandey — for the depot. As part of their plan to dupe the paint company, Pathak floated a dubious firm, JP Enterprises, in partnership with Jha in 2017. The firm then started procuring goods from the paint company.
Sources said the company grew suspicious after JP Enterprises’s outstanding payment for the purchases amounted to Rs 56 lakh and upon inquiries, it was found that the firm was jointly owned by Pathak and Jha.
An official of Mohan Paints said, “The GST registration of JP Enterprises has confirmed that it is owned by Pathak and Jha. We had approached the court of the chief judicial magistrate in Seraikela Kharsawan in 2020, seeking to file an FIR against the four employees.”
The court then directed Adityapur police to file a case against the four under sections 406, 420, 323, 408, 341, 506, 379, 467, 120(B) and 34 of the IPC.
Adityapur police station officer-in-charge Rajendra Prasad said, “Our investigation is over and a chargesheet will be filed shortly.” He added that none of the accused has been arrested so far.
