According to EOW officials, the accused would promise investors nearly 300% returns of their investment, with 20% of it being paid each month.

At l east 274 i nvestment receipts and agreements were recovered in a subsequent raid at Nasir’s Mira Road house. “To make the scheme look genuine, Chandrashekar would give his customers signed certificates. In a few cases, he also notarised the agreements. We have recovered nearly 1,000 such certificates from the accused,” said Jagdish Kulkarni, inspector EOW.
