Cheating case: IAF officer, friend in police custody

Bhopal: Wing Commander Kuldeep Waghela and dentist Chandresh Shukla, who was nabbed for posing as Home Minister Amit Shah and his assistant and calling up Governor Lalji Tandon to seek help for Shukla’s appointment as vice-chancellor, were on Monday remanded in police custody for two days.

Meanwhile, a team of Indian Air Force officials arrived in Bhopal to make inquiries about Wing Commander Waghela’s involvement in the case.

Other crimes of facilitating work fraudulently have so far not been revealed in the investigations. But nothing could be ruled out at the moment, sources said.

The two are being grilled in the police custody, said Superintendent of Police Special Task Force (STF) Rajesh Bhadoria.

Bhadoria said Chandresh became friends with Kuldeep Waghela during his visits at the Governor’s house when Waghela was ADC to former Governor Ramnaresh Yadav. Waghela was later posted at Air Force Headquarters.

After Chandresh applied for the post of Vice-Chancellor, he contacted Waghela and they hatched the plan to contact Tandon for helping Chandresh’s selection.

The Facebook of Chandresh is filled with photographs with leaders of political parties and he is currently working as a professor with a private Dental College.
