Amit Gangani: Kidnapped or Runaway?
The Amit Gangani case has taken another turn with a group of senior members from the community presenting memorandums
The Amit Gangani case has taken another turn with a group of senior members from the community presenting memorandums to the Superintendent of Police today against Gangani, who has remained untraced since 21st of May.
The memorandum alleges that Gangani had conned several people in the name of investment in his upcoming real-estate project at Madri. The amount totals to several lakhs of rupees.
Two of the people who claimed to be cheated by Amit Gangani are Sonu Hasija and Bhavesh, who have presented letters to S.P Hari Prasad Sharma. According to these letters, Gangani had borrowed large sums of money from them and then absconded from Udaipur.
Today’s events came as a contradiction to Amit’s father Arjun Gangani’s claim, who had lodged an FIR yesterday against five people who had allegedly lent money to his son at high interest rates and were harassing Amit to return the money which had finally led to his son’s kidnap at the hands of the accused in an attempt to reclaim the money.
Declaring all the claims made by Arjun Gangani to be baseless, some of the senior community members said that all of the accused, namely Renku Sindhi, Sanjay Gurnani, Vinay Rajpal, Kanhaiya Lal Kumawat and his son Bittu Kumawat are from respectable families and have no connection with any money launderers or gangs.
They also claimed that 30-year-old Amit was not given the money on interest but borrowed it from many people and, in return, promised a part of the profit made from his Sanskar City project.

According to the memorandum, Hasija and Bhavesh had lent Rs. 5 Lakhs and Rs. 9.6 Lakhs respectively to Gangani.
Sindhi Central Yuva Samiti and Jhulelal Seva Samiti deny all allegations made by Amit Gangani’s father and pointed the finger at Amit’s character, which they describe to be ‘very irresponsible’. “He led a very flashy lifestyle” said Sanjay Bhaktanim, one of the representatives of the community.
“We had informed the police officials responsible for the case that all the accused are innocent and have no connection with any form of property mafia. We also made an appeal to the S.P. to not detain anyone named in the report or their family members,” added Prataprai Chug, President of the Jhulelal Seva Samiti.
S.P Hari Prasad Sharma assured that the case will be handled with care and all police officials working on the case will be directed according to the information provided by all sources.
