With every passing day, new fraud cases continue to come to fore against the 'Matric fail doctor' Ramesh Chandra Swain, who has been accused of duping as many as 18 women after marrying them.

In another such development, the Cuttack-Bhubaneswar Commissionerate Police raided a farmhouse of Swain at Khamal under Khuntuni block in Dhenkanal district on Wednesday.

As per police sources, Swain had duped a nursery owner from Andhra Pradesh of Rs 4,50,000. Introducing himself as a senior official in Health Ministry, Swain had procured some saplings from the nursery and planted them in his farmhouse. However, the cheque he had given to the nursery owner for payment against the saplings order bounced.

Meanwhile, the five day remand of Swain is ending today. If sources are to be believed, the police may pray before the court to increase his remand period for a few more days for further interrogation into his crime syndicate.

The Commissionerate police have reportedly got information about links of the fake doctor’s brother-in-law Ganesh and driver Papu in connection with his fraudulent acts. Efforts are on to nab both Ganesh and Papu for interrogation.

A day ago, the Twin City Police had raided a house at Iswarpur area in Kendrapara and picked up the Swain's sister for questioning.

A special squad brought Ramesh’s sister Rashmita Beura to Bhubaneswar for quizzing her in connection with her alleged involvement in the frauds committed by her brother. 

She has been kept at an undisclosed location where she is being questioned. Significantly, other members of her family managed to escape from the house during the police raid.

Police sources said that Rashmita was one of the key associates of Ramesh and she used to help her brother in perpetrating the frauds.
