Ghaziabad-based insurance agent AK Jain, who had filed an FIR against Webwork Trade Links Pvt Ltd for allegedly running a Ponzi scheme, said he will file a petition in Allahabad high court, seeking security.

He said that the police failed to provide him security whereas he is continuing to receive threatening calls.

The 55-year-old will approach the court for its intervention next week and has been compiling all required details. Jain alleged that the Noida police is yet to seize the Audi car, worth over Rs1 crore, from the directors. He said that this shows the slow pace of the investigation.

“More than three weeks have passed but the Audi car owned by the directors is yet to be seized. It shows that the local police are not serious about the investigation. In such circumstances, I do not see myself in a safe environment. I am being threatened continuously by various people,” said Jain.

Jain had written to the director general of police (Uttar Pradesh), Javeed Ahmad, and the Union home ministry, over his need for security as he has been receiving threatening calls.

He said, “I wrote to all senior officers of the state government but no one has responded. Only the court can ensure me justice and security. I will pray to the court for the formation of a special investigation team to investigate the fraud,” said Jain.

On February 12, based on Jain’s complaint, the Sector 20 police had registered a case against the two directors of the company. Jain had alleged that the company duped him of Rs3.45 lakh and did not provide him profits as promised in an agreement.

Jain said he has given a 40-page complaint to the police, which includes the names of suspects involved in the fraud. He said the documents were confidential but came into the public domain due to the connivance of police, after which he started receiving threats.

However, the assistant superintendent of police, Gaurav Grover, said that the investigation into the matter is going on. He said, “We had sought four-day custody of both the accused, during which we learnt many things. The server and computers of the company were seized. The investigation has not stopped in any manner.”

Responding to Jain’s apprehensions, Grover said, “If he feels a threat, he should report the matter to the local police station, where he lives. The police will definitely look into his complaints.”
