New Delhi: The father of a man named as an accused in the multi-crore Mahadev betting app scam case was found dead under suspicious conditions in the Durg district of Chhattisgarh. Police suspect it to be a case of suicide.

The 62-year-old deceased worked as a security guard in a small factory. He had been missing for the last two days and his body was found in a well on Tuesday evening, Durg senior superintendent of police (SSP) Ram Gopal Garg was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times.

“He consumed liquor on Sunday night with two of his roommates, and he went missing the next morning. On Tuesday evening, his body was found in a well at Achhoti village under the Anda police station, around 400 metres from his room,” Garg said.

The deceased was the father of an accused who allegedly worked as a cash courier in the Mahadev app case and was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).

The body has been sent for post-mortem examination and further investigation is underway from all angles.

The federal agency has alleged that a forensic analysis and a statement made by a “cash courier” had led to “startling allegations” that Mahadev betting app promoters had paid about Rs 508 crore to outgoing Chhattisgarh chief minister Bhupesh Baghel, and that “these are subject matter of investigation”.

Baghel has repeatedly denied the allegations and accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of misusing ED ahead of the assembly elections in the state.
