Dr. Rajesh Baghe and his wife Rashmi, along with four others, have been charged with defrauding Praful Bahatude and his partners of around Rs.134 crore. At the Pachpaoli police station, a cheating charge was filed.
Baghe and his associates had entered into a business agreement with Bahatude and his associates in 2018 to collaborate on clinical items and linked services, according to police. According to authorities, Bahatude had also deposited roughly Rs.1.18 crore with Dr Baghe’s firm.
It’s learnt, Bahatude got only some of the many equipment for which he had placed the order. As he started demanding for the deposits and investments, Baghes and their associates did not return the amount, said police.
