support in the form of unsecured advances to the company from time to time
but created losses every year. He also managed a sanction of loan of
Rs.7.00 Cr. (4.00 Cr. Term loan for installation if refinery + 3.00 Cr.
working capital) from his bankers i.e. Bharat Co. op. Bank (Mumbai) Ltd.

taken all the company's legal documents in his custody from Bharat Co. Op.
bank by giving false undertaking that he will personally hand over these
documents to company's register office at Nagpur and tried fraudulently to
create first charge of his company i.e. Master industries Pvt. Ltd. over
the assets of the company (UAPIL) for Rs.2.267 3635 against his unsecured
advances and raised his total claims of more than Rs.7.00 Crore against the
company (UAPIL) including interest; as per books of accounts, not supported
by underlying documentary evidence hence these dues of unsecured advances
have been disputed by the company (UAPIL). For want of details of accounts:
