MUMBAI: City economic offences wing (EOW), probing the multi-crore fraud involving a private firm, MavrodiMondialMoneybox India or MMM India, on Tuesday arrested a Russian national and his Indian wife from Goa for their alleged role in the multi-crore fraud across the country.

Those arrested were Michael Gulakhev (25) and Jennifer Menezes. "The duo was controlling the publicity and coordination of the firm through internet. We have just picked them up from Goa and they will be brought here by tonight," said a police officer. Gulakhev married Menezes sometimes ago and has been working for the MMMIndia as a translator and motivator. "He had in fact organized several training and motivatiging camps for the investors. Whenever any Russian visited and delivered lecture, Gulakhev would translate it into English and later in Hindi," said the police. The EOW has so far frozen more than 20 bank accounts belonging to the suspects. "We are trying to find out if some money has been sent outside the country," said a police source.

Earlier in June, the EOW took five suspects including two Russians in custody. They were first arrested by the Assam police for their fraud. Those arrested earlier included two Russians Alexei Muratov and Danis Rosaov and Dinesh Kotian, Rimish Balan, both Mumbai based officials of the company, and Nabajit Das, an Assam-based agent for the firm. The EOW registered an FIR on June 3 against 17 people. The fraud mastermind, Sergei Mavrodi, a Russian national, is also wanted in this case. The accused were first arrested by the Guwahati police.

The city police filed a production warrant in a Guwahati court and secured the accused's custody. They will be produced before the Esplanade court on Friday. The Punjab Police have also confirmed that the accused duped investors of Rs 15 crore there. MMM India says it is neither a company nor a business but a "mutual-aid fund". It was set up by Sergei Panteleevich Mavrodi, a Russian businessman and financier, who was found guilty in a Russian court of duping over 10,000 investors.
