Jimmy Nagarwala was employed with the research and analysis wing of the cabinet secretariat. He rang up the chief cashier of State Bank of India, Parliament Street branch, To tell to keep rs 60 lac in cash c\ready. He had imitated the voice of Indira Gandhi and told him or so Mr.VK Malhotra, the chief cashier, told the police. A part of the contingency funds available to Prime Minister was kept with this SBI Branch. Nagarwala reached the Bank, collected the cash and then vanished into thin air. Cashier Malhotra panicked and rushed to PMO, police was sent on the Nagarwala trail. Te police nabbed him a short while later from a Dharmshala. But he did not have the cash that he had collected earlier in the same day.
The unorthodox withdrawal of such a huge sum triggered off a huge din. Indira had to answer to several embarrassing questions, She had few answers to convince an excited opposition. Nagarwala was subsequently lodged in Tihar Jail. He was to complain of a certain uneasiness, but by the time medical assistance could reach him, it was too late. Nagarwala died mysteriously in Jail. Nagawala a few month before his death/ murder mystery, he had faced an attack from unidentified assailants while he was with his family in his car.. How do investigating authorities establish the involvement of Nagarwala? Is still unanswered question.
The MYSTERY further compounded when VK Malhotra ; the same cashier involved in above case.. After he retired from SBI he was hired as Chief Accounts Officer by MARUTI UDYOG! The same dream project of Sanjay Gandhi…Sources: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1971_Nagarwala_scandal
