Lucknow: In an act of disgrace of raping a three and a half year old, parents of the child, studying at Mother’s Pride School, have registered a First Information Report (FIR) against a couple of school officials at Indirapuram Police Station, Ghaziabad. One would be surprised to find out that the school is run by a family who has been in question ever since 1986 and has been under CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) scanner.
Mother’s Pride School comes under the Narendra Charitable Trust, registered in 1995 by Sumer Chand Gupta and runs in the name of his mother Raj Rani Gupta, who opened the trust in memory of his late son Narendra. But it is his second son, who grafted illegal family assets during a period of 9 years by indulging family members into his misdemeanour of pooling-in disproportionate assets. Raj Rani Gupta is not aware of any institutional body running in her name. She only provides signature where her son tells her to.
According to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), the man was alleged to have amassed properties worth over Rs 9.5 Crore in a service as EE where his family collectively could not have saved even Rs 9.5 lakh (if maximum). Other accused in CBI’s list include Sudha Rani (wife), Satyawati Goel (mother in law), Smita Goel (sister in law), Anil Goel (br\ xother in law) and Govind Ram (distant relative).

CBI raided their home at 172 – A, Meera Bagh, New Delhi and recovered Rs 1.08 Lakh cash and some documents consisted of documents of properties (including flats, plots & farm), pass books of 28 banks, chequebooks, account books, diaries, company shares certificates and several other entities. After they were all scrutinized, it was found that the Devender Gupta is having properties worth over Rs 11 crore whereas family earned money totals upto, just under Rs 2.29 crore and he do not has answers for left assets worth Rs 9.58 Crores.
Probe reveals that Devender Gupta is diploma holder in civil engineering and started his career as a JE (Junior Engineer) in MCD (Minor Civil Division) in March, 1986. Later, he was promoted to AE (Assistant Engineer) in February, 1991 and then to EE (Executive Engineer) in 1998. From the time he was promoted to AE till the CBI investigation that lasted till 1999, his assets grew manifolds and countered his wealth on the basis of his earnings.
His father Sumer Chand’s earning was found out to be Rs 6.17 Lakh (on the basis of income tax return) but he donated Rs 10.27 Lakh to his said trust for construction of the building which now stands as school which again is questionable. He started filing the returns since 1990 and all his earning are in form of the pension he received after he retired from MCD in which his Devender works.
Devender’s wife, Sudha Gupta was inspected to have earned Rs 16.47 lakh, again on the basis of the IT return. Sudha and her brother Anil even started an enterprise called ‘Infotech Computers System’, citing the degrading IT return from the year they started their enterprise, they suffered for three consecutive years but all their bills were reportedly being paid from the income of the company which conflicts the matter. Also, they tried showing the loss which was over Rs 8.5 lakh, as an expenditure made into the enterprise.
Devender’s family took numerous loans (mounting to Rs 93 Lakh) from ‘Amulya Leasing and Finance’, run by Brij Bhushan Gupta. Most of the vehicles used by Devendra and family members were in the name of the trust and they were bought with “Amulya” money, although, part of actual costs of vehicles were paid back.
Suggestively, the calculation of his disproportionate assets is down below.
The total income from the known sources during the check period (investigation period): Rs 2,28,75,698.89 (mentioned in the chargesheet).
The worth of total assets that grew in the check period: Rs 11,34,62,203
Total Expenditure made: Rs 52,11,304.50
Likely Savings (Income-Expenditure): Rs 1,76,64,394.39
Disproportionate Asset: Rs 9,57,97,808.81
It can be seen that each member unknowingly (in the case of mother of Devender) or knowingly, are involved in significant wrong doings. The family totally seeks to only earn money regardless the path is right or wrong, if they are seeing the economic benefit, they are going for it. An episode of the same line-up occurred when we see that they have established a staff, keeping a criminal intellect, at their school ‘Mother’s Pride’. This was revealed lately, when parents of a three and a half year old registered an FIR against two of the school officials for raping their girl studying in pre-nursery.
Devender, like an irresponsible person who is only running after money, must have had no clue what is going on in the organization run by him until the news surfaced and until those alert parents pasted the truth in front. He simply chose to remain absent from the entire event even after parents staged a protest against the school administration.
Parents are now roaming insecure for their tiny tots, who are being treated in such sick manners. The incidents rising in India are horrific and the situation is rather tragic in north. The number of such confrontations is unpleasantly shocking but nothing is being done to strike the sticky bigotry.
This is not just the story of one man and one school or this particular case, there are several other narrow-minded imbecile who have changed the meaning of trust, especially when people are entrusting them with the responsibility of their kids, rest assured that their kid is in safe hands but NO! They aren’t.
It is truly a shame for India where a girl, a woman who is treated in countless Godly avatars, is being attacked with such a disgraceful approach. Let alone, the eye of these twits doesn’t hesitates while looking at minors and now the emerging cases of children, who have not even learned to interact properly are facing such circumstances where they have no choice of words to explain what they have been through.
