They allegedly duped investors by promising them high returns with an interest of up to 12.5 per cent, the police said. About `200 crore were collected from across Vidarbha and mostly retired government servants and businessmen fell into the trap, the police added.
The police received a number of complaints in this regard, following which the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) conducted an investigation. Subsequently, offences under relevant sections of cheating and criminal breach of trust under IPC (406, 420, 34) and provisions of Maharashtra Protection of Investors Deposit Act, 1999, were registered on Saturday night, the police said. No arrest has been made so far, the officers added.
