The special public prosecutor (PP) appointed by the Maharashtra government to appear on behalf of the state in connection with the QNET scam, recently resigned from all cases.
The government appointed Pradip Gharat as special public prosecutor. He was appearing in various court cases filed in the Bombay High Court, Sessions Court, Esplanade Court and Bandra Metropolitan Court on behalf of EOW, Unit III.
Sources said that Gharat did not appear for the Vanamala bank account de-freezing case — pending with the Bandra 9th Court — for four consecutive times.
Meanwhile, another company, Vihaan direct selling (India) Pvt Ltd. in the QNET scam, have also filed a new case in the sessions court for unblocking their websites from which they were operating the money circulation scheme.
On Friday, the original complainant in the case filed an application with the Secretary-Law and Judiciary Department, Home Minister, Chief Justice-Bombay High Court, Principal Judge-Sessions Court, CMM-Esplanade court, Mumbai police commissioner, additional commissioner of police (EOW) and others apprising them of this unfortunate development. Gharat is reportedly an expert on financial crimes and MLM Fraud and steps should be initiated to re-instate the special PP as soon as possible.
