The Old Goa Police have filed a charge sheet against alleged job scamsterVinod Desai under Section 420 of the Indian Penal Code for cheating a Merces youth Mervin Fernandes.  Panaji Judicial Magistrate First Class (JMFC) Artikumari Naik has issued summons to Vinod Desai directing him to appear in Court on 14th August to face trial.

Vinod Desai while claiming to be working for Union Minister Shripad Naik had promised Mervin Fernandes a government job at the Secretariat on payment of six lakhs and had taken an advance of two lakhs. Having failed to secure the job Mervin Fernandes demanded a refund and Vinod Desai on 28th June 2017 had issued him a cheque of one lakh as part refund but that cheque bounced.

On 20th September last year Mervin Fernandes lodged a complaint at the Old Goa Police Station and Vinod Desai on being summoned handover a cheque of Rs three lakhs as full and final settlement but that cheque also bounced after which the Old Goa Police on 25th September registered an F.I.R of cheating against Vinod Desai under Section 420 of the Indian Penal Code.

Vinod Desai a resident of Old Goa while flouting his close connection with politicians has allegedly over the last few years duped hundreds of young job seekers to the tune of crores of rupees. He also posted on social media his picture in the company of politicians including late Manohar Parrikar and former Panaji MLA Sidharth Kunkalienkar.

In November last year Mervin Fernandes represented by Adv. Aires Rodrigues initiated criminal proceedings under Section 138 of the Negotiable Instruments Act against Vinod Desai in the cheque bouncing case. The Court last month examined Union Minster Shripad Naik and has now summoned Sidharth Kunkalienkar to appear on 2ndAugust.
