Mumbai: The Bombay high court has directed the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) to investigate the Rs 1,000 crore fraud pertaining to properties in Pune belonging to B.P. Colabawalla. The court chided the Pune police for not doing so earlier.

A division bench of justices B.R. Gavai and B.P. Colabawalla was hearing a writ petition filed by Pune resident Yogesh Thakkar against the fraud of transferring properties belong to the Osho Rajneesh Trust in their names by two trustees. Advocate Prad-eep Havnur appeared on behalf of the petitioner who had prayed for directions to the Pune police to investigate the case and later had sought the transfer of the case to the CBI as the police had failed to make any substantial progress in the probe. The court has directed the EOW to file an interim probe report within four weeks.
