    Congress leader caught in foreign currency scam of Rs 4,515 crore

    K P Punnoose, president of Niranam panchayat near here, was arrested on Sunday for running a foreign currency racket. The development comes following the seizure of foreign currency worth Rs 4,515 crore from his ‘agent’ Vimal Raj from Chennai on Saturday.

    The Congress (I) leader and the elder brother of K P Yohannan of Believers Church, was arrested on charges of cheating and operating unauthorised foreign funds, and Vimal for stealing foreign currency from Punnoose, 68.

    It was alleged that Vimal had stolen Yugoslavian Dinar (Yum) to the tune of Rs 4,515 crore from Punnoose. But it was revealed that Punnoose had entrusted Vimal to raise foreign funds in the name of the Olivu Mala Trust run by Punnoose.

    Mathrubhumi English - K P Yohanan's brother under arrest

    Thiruvalla: Pathanamthitta Neeranam panchayat president K P Punnoose was arrested by the Thiruvalla police for running a foreign currency racket. K P Punnoose is the sibling of K P Yohanan, head of Beleivers church.

    Police arrested Chennai-based man Bimalraj for illegally possessing Rs 18 crore Yugoslovian dinar, from Thiruvalla on Saturday. Police said they have been involved in this racket from 2012. The transactions were held under the name Olivemala run by Punnoose.


    According to police, both the accused were taken into custody from Thiruvalla town on Saturday night when Vimalraj reportedly made an attempt to ran away with the three foreign currency notes.

    The police suspect that the duo were trying to convert the `currency' notes with the help of an authorisation letter obtained by Punnose from the Reserve Bank of India on behalf of a private trust named Olivermala run by him. He is the elder brother of Bishop K.P.Yohannan of the Believers Church.

    Superintendent of Police, P. Vimaladitya, said the police was verifying the authenticity of the currency and a case has been registered for cheating against the two.

    Rs 4,515 crore scam ? Whats the big deal ? COALgate is a 1.067,000 crore scam. Compared COALgate, this scam is nothing.

    This is a very nominal scam for Congress. For Congress govt. SCAMs are state of mind !!!

    Media shouts for a while and investigation continues... NO actions will be taken. Lets not exaggerate this...
