Mahatma Gandhi’s Great Granddaughter to Face Forgery Charges in South Africa

Ashish Lata Ramgobin, Mahatma Gandhi’s great-granddaughter, has recently been accused in South Africa for defrauding two businessmen. The businessmen have accused her of defrauding 11 million rands (approx USD 831,380) as they claim that she secured a tender for importing bedding from India for a private hospital group called Netcare.
Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi who belongs to Hawks, an elite fraud investigation unit, has alleged Ramgobin that she provided certain forged invoices and documents for convincing the investors that three containers of linen were shipped from India. Businessman S R Maharaj said that he provided 6.2 million rands alongwith a promise of sharing large profits only after Ramgobin’s request, allegedly to clear import and customs duties that were prevalent for the non-existing consignment.

However, that’s not the end of story. Another businessman alleged an advanced 5.2 million rands under a similar pretence. Ramgobin belongs to the extremely popular Gandhi family. She is the daughter of Ela Gandhi, a renowned human rights activist and Mewa Ramgobind who have played a humungous role in reviving the Phoenix Settlement that was established by Gandhi while he was in South Africa.
