The helpless depositors of Adarsh Credit Co-operative, who deposited their hard-earned money believing their money would grow with time are finding it hard to recover even their principal amount.
Every week we receive several mails from the victims. Since it is not possible to publish all of them, as a sample we are publishing a letter full of anguish and pain written by one Ashok Kumar Chouhan to the Sh. H. S. Patel, I.A.S.(Retd.), Liquidator for Adarsh Credit Co-Operative Society Limited.
Chouhan, a retired government servant and now a pensioner of Rajasthan is resident at New Housing Board, Pali (Rajasthan). For the sake of caution we have deleted his mobile number, though his email, as given by him is being published.
Adarsh Credit is accused of duping more than 20 lakh depositors in the name of cooperative. The arrested founder chairman of Adarsh Credit Mukesh and his family members are alleged to have been running Ponzi schemes and had floated several fake companies to which they diverted Rs 8400 crore.
Below is his letter which is self-evident:
