Bank transactions of Sankalp Anand suspicious: UP police

Mathura: Bank details of Sankalp Anand, poet-lyricist Santosh Anand's son who allegedly committed suicide along with his wife by jumping before a train in Mathura, show that several transactions up to Rs 1 crore were made in the last three years, police said today.

"The bank details, which were up to 30 pages, show that during the last three years transactions of Rs 20 lakh, Rs 50 lakh and even up to Rs one crore were made. We shall make a list of account holders with which transactions took place," Superintendent of Police (Crime) Ashok Kumar Rai said here.

"The nature of transactions are suspicious. Transactions took place with some companies that preferred transfer of money through real time gross settlement system," he said. Sankalp, who worked as a lecturer at the Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan National Institute of Criminology and Forensic Science in Delhi, along with his wife Naresh Nandini (34) and daughter Ridhima (5) had jumped in front of a train in Mathura on October 15 last year. While the husband-wife duo died on the spot, the daughter survived.
Rai said the crime branch had also got the call details of Anand's mobile phone.

"Now we shall match the call details with the bank transactions. We will also try to find out why these companies deposited money in Sankalp's personal bank account not of the institute," he said.

"The investigation is time consuming as the companies involved are from Maharastra, Gurgaon, Himachal Pradesh, Delhi etc," he said.
On the basis of a ten-page suicide note alleging a fraud to the tune of Rs 250 crore, Mathura police had filed an FIR against 38 persons including the then Director of Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan National Institute of Criminology and Forensic Science and DG (Homeguard) Kamalendra Prasad for allegedly abetting the suicide.

The family members of Sankalp have alleged that he was being "pressurised by his seniors" to commit a fraud from a recently allocated development fund worth Rs 250 crore, which was mentioned in his suicide note.
