UP Police in Rajkot to arrest directors of Ajanta India



Rajkot: A team from Uttar Pradesh police has come to Rajkot to arrest two directors of Morbi based Ajanta India Ltd, part of diversified Ajanta group engaged in making consumer products like clocks, police said today.

The team has come here couple of days back to arrest Ashok Patel and Bhavna Patel, directors of Ajanta India, following a non-bailable warrant issued by a court in UP based on a complaint filed by one Charanjeet Pritamsingh, sources said.

According to the police, Charanjeet, a stockist in UP for Ajant India Limited had lodged complaint with Bareli police station alleging that the company directors cheated him by not replacing defective stock of CFL lamps worth Rs 13.50 lakh.

Charanjeet had lodged a complaint with Bareli police station three year back and local court there ordered the directors to appear before it but the two did not, following which the police got a non-bailable warrant issued against them for their arrest.

The UP police team was accompanied by local police during the investigation carried out at business and residence premises of the two in Morbi but no arrest has been made so far, sources added.
