Thrissur: Four people, including Jasmine Sha, the main accused in the UNA (United Nurses Association) financial fraud case, have been arrested. Shobi Joseph, Nitin Mohan, and Jeethu were arrested by the crime branch team from Thrissur. The High Court had earlier rejected the anticipatory bail petition filed by Jasmine Shah in the case. This was followed by an arrest.

Earlier, the Ministry of External Affairs had issued lookout notices against the four accused and issued circulars at airports across the country.

The crime branch is investigating eight people in connection with UN fraud. Jasmine Shah’s wife Shabna is also a defendant in the case. This is because it was found that around Rs 55 lakh was transferred to Shabna’s account. The three state leaders who prepared the fake document were also included in the list of defendants. It was also learned that the four accused, including Jasmine Shah, had left Nedumbassery for Qatar on July 19.

The crime branch had registered a case against seven persons, including Jasmine Shah, on charges of embezzling Rs 3 crore from the organization’s funds. The plaintiff in the case is one of the former office bearers of the United Nurses Association.
