Police said on Monday they will probe allegations by a farmer in Beed district that a moneylender sought his daughter and daughter-in-law for “company” in exchange for releasing his mortgaged land.

“We have initiated action on the farmer’s claims and will take appropriate action against the moneylender,” Beed superintendent of police Anil Paraskar said.

The officer said chairperson of the State Women’s Commission Vijaya Rahatkar also called him and sought a report on the matter.

“In April, police received a complaint about the land being seized from the farmer by the moneylender. However, it is only on Sunday that the farmer Inder Munde from Dharur tehsil in Beed district mentioned that the moneylender Bhagwan Bade sought his daughter and daughter-in-law for ‘company’ to end the mortgage on his land,” he said.

“We got to know this fresh angle from news reports. The farmer hasn’t come forward to register complaint, but we have initiated an inquiry and will take action accordingly,” Paraskar said.

Munde said the moneylender made this shocking demand despite repayment of the loan taken from him.
