The case comes after three of the accused were transporting the demonetized cash in a car, when they were stopped by the police in the Ghatkopar area of Mumbai, CBI officials added. Upon interrogation, the 3 accused stated that they were bank officials and were transporting the said Rs 10 crore from the head office of Vaidyanath Cooperative Urban Bank in Maharashtra’s Beed region.

When asked about the allegations faced by the doctor, a CBI spokesperson told DNA: “He is accused in the overall case of fraudulently transporting the money. His exact role will come out after an investigation.”

Questions on the probe

CBI officals have claimed that the money was being used for the purposes of money laundering. DNA has also pointed out the director of the co-operative bank is Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Pritam Munde, the daughter of late BJP leader Gopinath Munde.

    Most of the news are not relaible and not to be taken by face value. Media exagerrate negative news ans never correct or apologise for such news which will have devastating effects on individuals and families…

    Ignore until its poved beyond doubt.

  2. Enter your comment here…when money is only consideration for your skill, you get this!! ha ha. Humanist

  3. Pls check the entire story Aurangabad doctor admits it\’s his money and nothing to do with dr Suresh advani https://youtu.be/TByrLVUTbFQ

  4. Incorrect conclusion. Please watch the video again carefully. The doctor speaks of only a small part of the amount deposited in November and apparently had proper receipts for them. But he also said the money was kept with Dr Suresh Advani for a while before sending to the adjoining bank. Clearly a cock-and -bull story. There is more to it than meets the eye!
    Time some people who are known for fleecing terminally ill cancer patients mercilessly, are investigated.

  5. Such matters never see end of the day and will be burried; since its BJP controlled bank involved then for sure no result will come out. Cant imagine & belive CBI mismanagment in 10cr case when they handle cases worth 10,000cr!

  6. It means that Padma Bhushan award committee don\’t see credentials of a person.

  7. Padmabhushan awards rarely go to the real crusaders of human health, instead you would see influential doctors working at corporate hospitals at the receiving end of such awards.

  8. After the \”awarding\” what the committee can do if they indulge in such activities ???..They can only recall the award after investigation reaches a conclusive end.
