IMPHAL July 4: The agents and concerned leaders of VISAREV who are reportedly hiding in other states will be declared ‘wanted’ by the investors in the state.
The Chief Judicial Magistrate (Imphal West) has in support also directed the police to take up necessary action in the regard.
It may be mentioned that IFP broke the news regarding the dubious network in December last year. This paper had called the card to concerned Visarev officials to prove their authenticity and after various clarifications in the form of advertisements in the media by the leaders appealing the investors that payments will be made soon, had ultimately failed.
Disgruntled investors in turn had formed an association (Visarev Investors’ Association) to take up measures to address the grievances of the scores of investors.
As an initiative of the VIA , the association’s secretary N Premananda submitted a complaint petition to the Chief Judicial Magistrate of Imphal, Salam Imocha Singh.
The petition states that the responsible persons involved in perpetrating the illegal network scam should be arrested and punished under per provisions of the law.
The CJM in a directive issued today ordered the OC of Imphal Police Station to investigate the case and report.
The directive issued mentions that 12 agents of the Visarev company namely Kumar Kom,45, s/o Rk Ibohal Singh of New Checkon, Nameirakpam Victor Singh , 43, s/o Pramod Chandra of Singjamei Chingamakha, Sagolsem Robindro, 38, s/o Nobin of Yairipok Santa Bazar at present resident of Palace Compound, Keshav Kanti Sharma, 43, a resident of Assam, Heigam Tolen Singh, 31, s/o Tonu Babu of Leihaopokpi village, Helakandi, Assam and Rk Jiranjit Singh, 38, s/o Rk Dorendrajit of Moirangkhom Loklaobung are the main agents of the Visarev company and have reportedly absconded the state.
The petition also urged the concerned to arrest them under section 406 (beach of trust), 417 and 420 (cheating) and 120 B (conspiracy).
Another six sub agents were also mentioned in the petition, namely Mayengbam Romesh Singh, 35, s/o, Khomei of Wabagai Makha Leikai, Oinam Rajesh, 26, s/o Omar of Bashikhong Bazar, Tonjam Saratchandra, 47, s/o Nodiachand of Lillong Chajing Mamang Laikai and a couple namely Laishram Kaoba, 45, s/o late Tomba of Langthabal Lep Makha Leikai and his wife Yumnam Nganthoi.

He further stated that through the companies, a sum to the tune of Rs 3000 crores have been collected from the investors of the state last year within July to December.
As all the concerned leaders had absconded from the state, a trust was also formed by more than a thousand investors of Visarev.
The outstanding amount of the trust members itself amounts up to Rs 34,62,49,250.
Talking to IFP, litigant N Premananda said that with the official directive to the police, an FIR will have to be taken up, afterwards the Visarev Investors Association will intimate all the student bodies of Guwahati, Kolkotta, Delhi, Bangalore etc about the details of the absconders and hopefully get some information from the students so that the perpetrators of the crime will be brought to justice.
