Money launderers arrested


Ujjain : Police are on the lookout for accomplices of money launderer Shivraj Singh Rathore, who was responsible for the suicide of a cloth merchant in village Bhatpachalana, due to extortion. Bhatpachalana police authorities earlier arrested Shivraj Singh on the basis of evidence available against him.

Cloth merchant Dungar Singh alias Bantu Bana committed suicide as money launderers pressured him to pay exhorbitant amounts well above what was actually due to them. Dungar Singh had already paid them Rs 15 lakh against a loan of Rs 1 lakh which was given to him through an acquaintance.

Police are now on the lookout for Pawan Singh Bhati who often pressurised Dungar Singh. Town inspector, Bhatpachalana, Amit Singh assured the kin of Dungar Singh that he would be arrested soon.
