Book in Frogery Case
In 2011, Bejoy and her family were booked by the CBI in a Rs 5-crore cheating and forgery case. Earlier, Bejoy had obtained a loan of Rs 4.58 crore from Union Bank of India. He forged export bills and even siphoned off the money. When his father was questioned by CBI officials, his father said Bejoy was a spendthrift. Bejoy spent so much money on his ex-wife Juhi Babbar that his company fell into financial crisis, and in order to maintain the company’s financial balance, he took out a loan. However, a close source of Juhi Babbar has denied this claim. Later, Bejoy’s father said the loan was not for his son Bejoy but for his textile company Minar International Ltd. However, Nambiar has stopped paying the installments after the case came to attention. Addressing the media, CBI officials said,
We found incriminating evidence in both locations that corroborated the bank’s allegations. The Nambians not only forged export documents, but also forged shipping and unloading orders even when there was no export. We now have to find out who was the person who helped them in this fraud. “
