From Parliament Building "Defects" Claim to Fraud Charges.
Khushdeep Bansal, a renowned Vastu Shastri who gained fame in 1997 for asserting “architectural defects” in the Parliament House library, has been arrested in connection with a ₹65 crore fraud case. Assam Police, in collaboration with the Delhi Police’s Special Cell, apprehended Bansal and his brother. The fraud, part of the ongoing ₹65 crore Autonomous Council scam, involves the son of a Congress leader from Madhya Pradesh.
The Counter Intelligence Unit (CI) of the Special Cell executed the arrest in Delhi’s Barakhamba area. Assam Police secured the accused on a transit remand and promptly departed for Assam, where the charges in the fraud case originate. The scam’s complexity involves multiple individuals collaborating to orchestrate the financial wrongdoing.
Kamal Sabarwal, owner of the Delhi-based Sabarwal Trading Company Private Limited, filed a complaint against Bansal. It has been reported that Bansal admitted to introducing an individual to Sabarwal, further implicating himself in the scam. As a consultant on state government projects and a strategic advisor to prominent businessmen and industrialists, Bansal’s involvement in such fraudulent activities has raised eyebrows.
In 1997, Bansal gained attention for claiming architectural defects in the Parliament House library, suggesting it as a reason for governmental instability. Now, he faces serious fraud charges related to the ₹65 crore scam. Bansal, known for his consulting work on state government projects and advising prominent businessmen, is entangled in a legal case that marks a stark contrast to his earlier claims about architectural balance.
