Yet another and most unlikely connection of city to Adarsh Housing Society scam of Mumbai has come to fore. Amarsingh Waghmare, the name which featured the list of allottees in the tower of deceit, was found to be a junior level employee in Container Corporation of India and is posted at the inland container depot at Nagpur.
He is among the seven persons from city who got a flat in this building of which five are alleged to be front men of politicians or Sancheti family. One flat has been allotted to retired banker JP Sharma, father-in-law of Adarsh chief promoter RC Thakur’s son. He claims he purchased the flat through his legitimate income. As TOI probed the whereabouts of allotees from city last year, two persons remained to be traced— Amarsingh Waghmare and Uttam Ghakare.
One Gulabrao Atram, believed to be a resident of Chandrapur, got a flat in Adarsh Housing Society and is yet to be traced.A commission of inquiry instituted to probe into the matter recently has issued summons to the allottees asking them to file an affidavit. That led TOI to a certain Amarsingh Waghmare, an employee in Concor. When contacted at the inland container depot (ICD), Waghmare accepted he had a flat in Adarsh Society.
“I got it through my batchmate in the college. He is RC Thakur’s nephew and works in customs and central exercise department at Nagpur,” he said as he reluctantly divulged the person’s name as Anil Thakur. Waghmare, in his 40s, is known to have a house on Wardha Road and apparently does not have any political connection so far. The news surprised those close to him. At Concor the consignment agents know him as a lowprofile official.
His posting is also not a ‘lucrative‘ one. He was just one among employees at Concor, a very cooperative person who would hardly get a chance to interact with the exporters or their agents,” said an agent in exim trade. On the summons sent by the inquiry commission, Waghmare said he would get it soon but quickly added he had already appeared before the authorities.
