Conman Kiran Patel: En Route To Ahmedabad With JK Police Team


SRINAGAR: Kiran Patel, an alleged conman facing a new case of fraud in Ahmedabad, is being transported by a police team from the city’s crime branch. They departed from Srinagar by road and are expected to arrive in Ahmedabad by Monday evening.

“The police team has left for Ahmedabad from Srinagar on Sunday morning after completing the procedure. He is being brought via road and will reach in 36 hours,” reported The Indian Express, quoting Chaitanya Mandlik, the deputy commissioner of police city crime branch.

After being investigated for allegedly posing as a Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) official and enjoying related privileges, Patel was in judicial custody in Jammu & Kashmir until March 31. The Gujarat police applied for a transfer warrant, as reported, to continue his prosecution in Ahmedabad.

Last month, Jagdish Chavda, brother of former BJP minister Jawahar Chavda, filed an FIR at the detection of crime branch police station in Ahmedabad. The FIR names Kiran Patel and his wife Malini for allegedly defrauding Jagdish of approximately Rs 15 crore in 2022, under the pretext of renovating his residential property in the Shilaj area of Ahmedabad.

IPC sections 406 (criminal breach of trust), 420 (cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property), 170 (personating a public servant), and 120B (criminal conspiracy) were used to book both Patel and Malini.

Malini is on a six-day remand of the DCB.
