Hadapsar police have registered a case against Shailaja Ramchandra Darade and her brother Dadasaheb Ramchandra Darade for allegedly taking money from people promising them a job as a teacher. As per the complaint filed by Popat Suryawanshi, who works as a teacher in a school in the Atpadi Sangli district, Dadasaheb took Rs. 12 lakhs and Rs. 15 lakhs from two of his relatives for a teaching job back in 2019.
