“While she was handling the Dadar branch, some students complained to the management that a portion was not completed in their class, even though the exams were nearing,” said a police officer from EOW. “The management then inquired into the matter and learnt that Sanghvi had also transferred around Rs 97 lakh from the class funds to her private bank account.

She used to ask students to write cheques in her name, instead of the tutorial’s name,” said Balsingh Rajput, deputy commissioner of police, EOW.After a detailed inquiry, the EOW arrested Sanghvi. Sanghvi had joined the D N Naik Classes in 2002, and in 2007, she was given the responsibility of handling the Dadar branch by the management of the institute.
