There are 19 offences for cheating, registered against the nine accused in Nashik, Pune, Aurangabad, Parbhani, Beed, Hingoli and other parts of the region.

Speaking to TOI, a CID official said that so far 8060 complainants have come forward in the Rs 210 crore scam. “The numbers are increasing as complainants are still coming forward reporting the dupe.
