The Mumbai police’s Crime Branch,which is probing a case in which money was allegedly siphoned off from Raveena Tandon’s husband Anil Thadani’s bank account,suspects that a person working for him might have helped the accused get hold his cheque book. Investigations have revealed that Thadani is one of the 10-12 victims who were targeted by an organised gang.

In April,the Crime Branch received an application from Thadani alleging that Rs 12.5 lakh had been transferred from his account to an account in the name of one Sumit Gupta. Thadani’s bank immediately froze his as well as Gupta’s accounts. Investigations revealed the money had been transferred using a cheque from Thadani’s cheque book,which had gone missing from his office.

The Crime Branch arrested Muzammil Tazdar and Salim Syed on Tuesday,and their interrogation indicated insider involvement,officers said on Thursday.

The Crime Branch found that Tazdar,posing as Gupta,opened accounts in 12 banks. He had money transferred into these accounts from accounts of people in Mumbai,Thane and Nashik. “We have identified a Nigerian national who hacked the accounts for the accused and received the biggest commission. The accused also sent out fake lottery emails and cheated a couple of victims,” said the officer.
