Two weeks after IMA founder and managing director Mansoor Khan fled to Dubai, a new video has come out in which he names several bigwigs involved in the 1500-crore fiasco, reports The New Indian Express.
Mansoor Khan claimed that IMA wasn’t a ponzi scheme but a “legal and proper business”. Khan also claimed that the friends and politicians he had trusted had back stabbed him.
In the video, Khan says, "I congratulate former Rajya Sabha member K Rahman Khan, K Ubaidullah Sharief (Congress worker), Mohammed Khalik Ahmed (editor, Pasban), Mukhtiyar Ahmed (named in a TADA case and discharged later), Feroz Abdullah Sait of Feroz Real Estate, Prestige Group's Irfan and Saravana (JDS member and president of Jewellers' Association), for their success in causing harm to IMA; also those from my group of directors who swindled money and those who spread hate messages that hastened the collapse of IMA."
Khan said that he was dealing with “very dangerous people” who were a threat to his life. He said that they wanted to eliminate him as he could spill their secrets in front of the judiciary.
"I am dealing with very dangerous people who are out to kill me. They know that the information I am going to reveal to the judiciary will get them into a lot of trouble, so they want to silence me. An IAS officer demanded Rs 10 crore when we applied for loan to bail out IMA. Since there was a little delay in arranging the money, he refused to process the papers and our company suffered closure," he claims.
Khan said that he wants to return to the country and that he has full faith in the country’s justice system. He requested protection from police and asked Alok Kumar to contact him.
