Ingen's property dispute: Doctor arrested by CID

A report was submitted to the HC and then the SC, where the former's order was questioned.

BENGALURU: CID sleuths arrested a 63-year-old doctor in connection with the property dispute case related to renowned taxidermist Edwin Joubert Van Ingen. The arrested is accused of helping Dutchman Michael Floyd Eshwer, who allegedly tried to take over Ingen’s property claiming to be his foster son. The arrested is Dr N. Chandrashekhar, Director, Aadithya Adhikari Hospital at Gokulam in Mysuru.

Eshwer, a horse trainer at Mysuru Race Course, befriended Ingen. Taking advantage of his age, he allegedly created fake documents claiming to be Ingen’s foster son. In four months, he transferred Rs 200 crore worth property to his name. A day before he passed away at the age of 101, Ingen filed a complaint against Eshwer in Nazarbad police station on March 2, 2013, accusing him of usurping his property.

Eshwer moved the HC seeking quashing of the FIR and the court ruled in his favour, directing the state to conduct a probe by a DGP- rank officer. The state government transferred the case to DGP, CID. A report was submitted to the HC and then the SC, where the former’s order was questioned. The apex court quashed the HC order and directed that the probe be continued. The state police chief then transferred the case to the CID.

“Investigations showed Dr Chandrashekhar had helped Eshwer with a fake death certificate about treatment given to Ingen and the time of his death. The duo hatched a criminal conspiracy with the intent to take over Ingen’s property. The doctor had further destroyed the documents that had details of the treatment given to Ingen. Using the death certificate issued by the accused doctor, Eshwer had misled the court that ruled in his favour,” a release stated.
