SEREMBAN TO GEMAS DOUBLE TRACK RAILWAY SCANDAL – HUNT FORÂ MALAYSIAN CON-MAN BALADEVAN THEAIVENDIRAM (Part 9)
Pathological liar, conman and fraud – Baladevan Theaivendiram (57) who claims he is â€˜a relativeâ€™ of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Honâ€™ble CM Dr Kalaignar M. Karunanidhi through marriage ties (claims the CMâ€™s daughter Kanimozhi is married to his nephew G. Aravindan a Singaporean) according to his relatives is hoping that the â€˜heat on himâ€™ will lessen so that he can emerge with another â€˜new schemeâ€™ to cheat more innocent individuals both in India and Malaysia with his far fetched claims!
According to a relative and another close associate of his Baladevan is furiously mad with this writer for this exposure as he is alleged to have said: â€œâ€¦why the fuss? ….its just money!â€
I feel really sorry for whoever this â€˜irresponsible manâ€™ is son, brother, husband (or should I say husbands to?) and father!
What a brilliant ‘role model’ to his teenage son!
Did the above two know Malaysian Baladevan Theaivendiram?
Who is actually AP Misra? Who is that ‘Dr Singh’ mentioned by Baladevan?
Below the excepts of some of those he cheated:
1. TY (Chairman)
â€˜ When he arrived at my office with a lap top of classified documents, pricing specification, designs and so forth of the Seremban to Gemas stretch, which includes, the letter of award from the Malaysian government to India which we checked and found to be authentic and showing me the mobile numbers of individuals in India, I was taken in.
He reiterated that he was â€˜appointed by the Ministry of Railways India and IRCON International to source out able companies to participate in the civil works and as suppliers for the Indian stretch of the Double Track Railways Project â€“ Seremban to Gemas!
Yes – he took upfront money from us and till today has not delivered even ‘a blade of grass!’
We provided him two luxury cars to use and he smashed them up!
We gave him many expensive pictorials on the civil works which he claimed he gave to Ministry officials but we understand now they are at the store room of his rented house in SS5 Petaling Jaya!
He has no decency, ethics, he is an opportunist who does not care who he destroys or hurts!
Datuk â€“ I am glad that you have decided to expose this man for what he really is before he cheats many more! â€“ TY (Chairman to a Construction Company)
2.Â Datuk SSâ€™
â€˜There were many of them but the directors of the said company Zen Bridge Sdn Bhd was this man Baladevan Theaivendiram and another Kanakarathinam or â€˜Kanaâ€™ who signed those agreements with us after payments were made!
They also had a â€˜hard sellerâ€™ by the name of â€˜Rajanâ€™ and they had an office at Bali in Sunway where we were invited and â€œkanaâ€™ gave the presentation on the project and he showed us several documents purported to be pre-selection of contractors on IRCON letterheads if I remember carefully.
They were going for a consortium approach then!
Privately he also told us he was a high powered corporate Chief Executive Officer who resigned and sold his luxury cars, which includes, a Mercedes S class and properties and invested in this company ZEN BRIDGE SDN BHD – to see this through.
That Baladevan was a ‘highly connected’ corporate figure whose brother worked for the then Minister of Works Datuk Seri S Samy Velu!
It all looked legitimate!
He continued that the monies collected were used to organize vehicles for IRCON staff and Ministry of Railways officials that they even brought expensive gifts like watches, pens and jewelery, â€˜covered their expensive bills here and away and so forth.’
We asked questions and he answered intelligently so we had no reservations then.
But we did not realize neither did we check only to find out later this was a RM2.00 company!
So much for Kana’s bullshit!
It is very embarrassing today after more than 9 years that this has come about but I can understand the reasons why you have decided to go public with this!â€™
3. CEO – MK
â€˜I guess I was the lucky one who got away. Yes, they did come to my office and performed like you claimed in your blog postings.
Yes, they all made claims and I did accompany ‘him’ to Delhi where I met this â€˜AP Misraâ€™ a Ministry of Railways official no doubt but I was sure that there was ‘more at play’ here!
You see we have extensive multi million dollar projects in India currently and also during ‘those years’ and I am quite well versed with Indian Officials and I was convinced something was not right!
You see these ‘fellas’ – wanted luxury cars, allowances, appointments as Directors and all those agreements, they had mention of â€˜payoutsâ€™ to third parties in India even before anything happened.
You got me there â€“ Yes, as a ‘corporate predator’, I was tempted, we all look for business openings but I was ‘put off’ with the upfront monies asked and so forth!
This was against my rules of engagement!â€™
Baladevan was angry with me and promised that he would ‘destroy our presence in India!’
For his information, we are now doing bigger and better projects there!
3.Â TH â€“ Businessman
â€˜He approached me to facilitate a telecommunication 2G License!
He claimed that he was Tamil Nadu Chief Ministerâ€™s relative and that they had a ‘relative’ minister in the federal cabinet that could facilitate a telecommunication 2G license for us.
He asked for upfront monies and there was payments to be made towards politicians post award!
Yes, he named names in India and they sounded perfectly authentic.
Baladevan gave us an impression that he was a politically connected corporate high flyer by the manner he smoked cigars, stayed in posh 5 Star hotels in India, especially the Taj Suites and the manner he created his persona!
We did not know that this was a unemployed conman living on innocent people’s monies!
We are today embarrassed.
In a way, I am glad that this matter has come out in the open and I hope India does the right thing in going public on this matter and putting out an advertisement in the Malaysian newspapers!
I am not bothered whether it is the Indian government, Ministry of Railways or IRCON International, the Tamil Nadu government – it should be done!
You have done right and I wish you all the best in bringing this rogue to justice! You have my support all the wayâ€™
â€˜JJ â€“ MDâ€™
Singapore police will be alerted!
This is not the first scam he has orchestrated throughout his miserable life of 57 years!
As this â€˜low life and scumbagâ€™ Baladevan Theaivendiram runs and hides â€“ I am advised that several police reports have being made.
Among the names that may emerge is that of his RM2/- company – Zen Bridge Sdn Bhd, a several others names of Indian nationals!
According to sources, one name that keeps coming up repeatedly is that of one â€˜AP Misraâ€™
And several others in Tamil Nadu?
It is in the Indian authorityâ€™s interest to shed more light on this soon?
And in this age and time – with the electronic DNA, I am aware that the links, if any, will be made!
As requested by the Indian authorities – Malaysian Baladevan Theaivendiram (57) hand-phone numbers were â€“ 919840940243 (India) and Malaysian then â€“ 0122825799!
Go get the electronic DNA print outs!
If you need help this ‘side of the border’ – my friends in Bukit Aman can help!
And get to the truth! Protect no one!
*Interestingly, there is now an ongoing scandal expose on the 2G Telecommunication License with Tamil Nadu’s AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa slamming Tamil Nadu Chief MinisterÂ – M Karunanidhi!
