MUMBAI: The Mumbai Police have launched investigations into an alleged fraud in a posh Kandivali housing complex where a private vaccination drive was undertaken two weeks ago, an official said.
"We are probing the matter after the society's complaint, but so far, there is no FIR lodged nor any detentions or arrests," a police official said.
According to the residents of the Hiranandani Heritage Society (435 flats in three towers) in Kandivali west, a fraudster allegedly carried out the vaccination drive for 390 people comprising society members and their families, in-house staff like security guards, drivers or domestic helpers on May 30.
It was conducted through a couple of facilitators, Rajesh Pandey and Sanjay Gupta, who claimed to represent leading private institutions like the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital (KDAH) and the Nanavati Hospital- and agreed to provide 400 vaccine doses for around Rs 1,260 each, for which the society paid around Rs 5 lakh.
