On the complaint of honorary secretary-general of two professional organizations of Gynecologists – Urogynecology and Pelvic Health Association of India (UPHAI) and The Society of Cosmetic Gynecology (TSCG), Dr Sanjay Sharma, the Ambala police registered a case of cheating and forgery against an Ambala-based gynecologist and her four family members. They were accused of defrauding amounts worth several lakhs of rupees.
According to the report, one of the accused Dr Aprajita Nandra of Nandra Hospital, Ambala, was working as the treasurer of the UPHAI and TSCG. The complainant Dr Sanjay alleged that she would misuse her post and in connivance with her in-laws and husband, she had committed financial misconduct worth lakhs with both the organizations.
On Tuesday, a case has been registered at Ambala Cantonment police station (PS) against the accused Dr Aprajita Nandra, her husband Dr Sudhanshu Nandra, father-in-law Dr Ashok Nandra, mother-in-law Manju Nandra and brother-in-law Dr Kartik Nandra—under Section 120-B (punishment for criminal conspiracy); 406 (punishment for criminal breach of trust); 409 (criminal breach of trust by servant); 420 (cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property); 468 (forgery for purpose of cheating); 471 (using as genuine a forged document); and 477-A (falsification of accounts) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
Dr Sanjay alleged, “Both the societies – UPHAI and TSCG, are duly registered legal bodies in India under the Societies Registration Act, with members from Indian Armed Forces, government services, as well as private doctors. I am sharing information about Dr Aprajita Nandra, who was the treasurer and chief coordinator of UPHAI and TSCG since 2015 onwards and she was managing all the finances and administrative offices of both these associations from her matrimonial address in Punjabi Mohalla of Ambala Cantonment, Ambala in Haryana. She also served as treasurer and chief coordinator of the First World Congress of Reconstructive Cosmetic Gynecology (RECOGYN 2017) held in New Delhi NCR in October 2017 and was responsible for transactions worth many tens of millions of rupees. Suddenly, on March 6, 2018, Dr Aprajita sent in an abrupt mail tendered her resignation without assigning any cogent reasons. This raised some suspicion in the minds of the office bearers and we inspected the records and asked her to handover all accounts, seals, stamps, records of UPHAI to another office bearers, but she did not co-operate.”
Dr Sanjay said, “She forged some documents and withdrew a sum of around rupees 4 lakh in the name of Ms Aman, who was actually the employee of Nandra Hospital. It was enquired from Ms Aman that she never received such amount from Dr Aprajita or her family. So far, as per the verified and documented records, the fraud which has been committed by Dr Aprajita and her family include a sum of around Rs 15-20 lakh. She withdrew around Rs 10 lakh through self-cash-cheque transactions from the account of societies. For the conference RECOGYN 2017, Dr Aprajita collected around Rs 3.5 lakh in cash, and some undisclosed amounts worth millions in the USD and Euros. The foreign exchange amount has been disclosed to the police department.”
Ambala superintendent of police (SP) Abhishek Jorwal said “These societies were registered in Patiala and now its general secretary Dr Sanjay Sharma alleged that Dr Aprajita who was treasurer and her family have connived to commit some embezzlement of funds from the accounts of UPHAI and TSCG. We have registered a case and an investigation has been initiated into it. Further action will be taken depending on the facts coming forward”.
