A 41 year old man from Stoke Poges has been sentenced to six years in prison for his role in a £2 million money laundering scheme.

Sandeep Singh Gill, of Framewood Road, was sentenced on June 9 at Isleworth Crown Court for producing false bank statements and documents to help legitimise financial transactions of account holders of his online banking service.

He was identified as being an integral part of the fraud and was arrested by HMRC when he returned to the UK in September 2013.

A warrant has been issued for Mr Gill's associate, 42 year old Rajesh Datta, from Slough.

Rajesh Datta, whose last known address was Middlegreen Road, Slough has a warrant for his arrest.

Chris Gill, Assistant Director, Fraud Investigation Service, HMRC, said:

“Money laundering is a serious offence, funding further criminality and denying vital public funds for the services we all rely on. HMRC is determined to make sure crime doesn’t pay, and has already restrained assets worth more than £7million linked to this fraud alone.

“We are keen to speak to Rajesh Datta, and urge any member of the public who may have information as to his whereabouts to get in contact with us by calling our 24-hour Hotline on 0800 59 5000.”
