The Inside Story
NAGPUR: Bandu Wankhede and his elder son Nitesh, whose plot to mastermind a fake robbery was exposed a day earlier, were produced before the lower court at Mouda on Saturday. The court remanded the father-son duo to police custody till July 25. The two were also booked for cheating, criminal conspiracy and other charges. Accomplices Bala Pelle and Avinash Kale, and hired robbers Mangesh Bhusari, Bhushan Bawankar and Mangesh Bawankule were also sent to PCR until July 25.

The seven, arrested by Nagpur rural police in the last 24 hours, were engaged in a dramatic episode planned to cheat Kacchru Meshram and his family who were supposed to sale a plot of five acres for Rs 52 lakhs to Bandu at Nerla. Bandu first got fake currencies prepared to create an impression that he had the cash to purchase the plot. Later, he hired Bhusari, Bawankar and Bawankule to pose as robbers and whisk away the bag having the fake note bundles. The cops, outsmarting the miscreants, cracked the case within few hours of the incident.
