Veteran singer Lata Mangeshkar has filed an FIR against a woman named Revati Khare, who has conned a lot of people by collecting charities from them in the name of the legendary singer.
It is said that she used Mangeshkar’s fake letter head, stamp and also forged her signature and these letters to numerous people thus conning them.
The said woman has been identified as Revati Khare, a resident of Kamal Raghunath Bhuvan in Nallasopora.
She was exposed after a donor messaged Mangeshkar about the money he had given to Khare and congratulating the singer for taking up social welfare. Alarmed by the incident, Mangeshkar asked her personal assistant Mahesh Rathod to file a complaint at the Gamdevi police station to look into this matter.
Police is investigating the matter. An official from Gamdevi police station has stated that they are searching for the miscreant woman and they will be recording the statements of the donors along with the singer to make the case the strong.
“Several people have donated money, some of them lakhs of rupees because Lata Mangeshkar’s name was associated with the cause,” said Dnyanesh Chavan, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Zone II.
The case has been registered against Revati under section 420, 465, 468, 469 & 471 of IPC.
