Maharastra court orders attachment of property of the opposition leader in state legislative

MUMBAI:  A court in Maharashtra’s Beed district ordered the attachment of properties of senior Nationalist Congress Party leader  and leader of opposition in the state legislative council, Dhananjay Munde in connection with a cheating case lodged against Mr. Munde  for not repaying a Rs 3 crore loan taken  from the district central cooperative bank several years ago.

The FIR, filed against Munde and other directors of the cotton mill, said that the loan was obtained without following due process and without checking if it had the ability to repay the loan. Munde, has been one of the directors of a cotton mill since 2006.

Beed SP G Sreedher had moved a miscellaneous application before the court under the Criminal Law Amendment Ordinance 1944, seeking attachment of immovable properties of the mill directors, including Munde.

Judge Dhananjay Deshpande of the additional district court of Ambajogai, in his order on September 5, stated that properties belonging to Munde be attached and he be prohibited from transferring or charging the said properties.

However, Munde said his opponents were drawing wrong conclusions from the court order in a bid to malign his image. He further claimed that he did not get prior notice due to which he could not defend his stand.
