A computer used in preparing fake invoices has been seized from the Mumbai-based office of one of the accused persons who is a former Navy staffer as part of probe into Navy’s alleged fake bill payment scam of Rs 6.33 crore, police said on Sunday.

“We have recovered the computer that was used to make fake bills in the scam from ex-Navy Ashok Nagangaudar’s Mumbai-based office yesterday. The computer will be examined thoroughly to find evidence,” Indore Additional Superintendent of Police (crime branch) Vinay Prakash Paul said.

He said Nagangaudar had allegedly used a bill book belonging to a local firm to make the invoices in which he showed fake purchase of some electrical equipment for Navy.

Paul said the bill book was made available to the accused by an Indore-based Chartered Account Ramratan Singhal.

After taking voluntary retirement from Navy where he had worked in Electrical Department, Nagangauda set up a business of supplying electrical parts to Navy.

Police have so far arrested Singhal, S Narayan, a senior auditor with Karnataka-based Principal Controllers of Defence Accounts (PCDA,) and retired Navy store keeper Rajkumar Choudhary besides four others in connection with the alleged scam.

“Certain officials in PCDA had cleared these fake bills and deposited the money in two banks accounts here. While Rs 5.33 crore was deposited in one account rest Rs 97 lakh in another account. The scam took place between July and October 2014,” Paul said.
