Doc held in Mysuru taxidermist cheating case

TIMES NEWS NETWORKThe Criminal Investigation Department (CID), probing the alleged cheating of Mysuru’s famous taxidermist Edwin Joubert Van Ingen of his properties worth Rs 500 crore, arrested a 63-year-old doctor on Tuesday on charges of abetting the fraud.

Dr N Chandrashekar, director, Adithya Adhikari Hospital in Gokulam, Mysuru, allegedly hid the fact that he’d issued a death certificate on Van Ingen’s demise to his relatives. He later issued a new death certificate to horse trainer Michael Floyd Eshwar hiding details of the treatment given to Van Ingen and the time of his death. “The doctor also destroyed the treatment history documents as part of the conspiracy with Eshwar. We arrested and produced him before the court, which remanded him in judicial custody,“ a CID officer said. Ingen, son of India’s first taxidermy factory founder Eugene Melville Van Ingen, was born and brought up in Mysuru.The Van Ingens’ most supportive patrons were the Mysore royals for whom they stuffed elephants and tigers. Van Ingen, a bachelor, lived alone, and he acquainted with Eshwar, a horse trainer at the Mysore Race Club.

Eshwar was booked in 2013 for allegedly cheating Van Ingen and taking over his house in Mysuru, a coffee estate in Kerala and other properties. Van Ingen died at the age of 101, a day after the cheating case was filed. Eshwar, who claimed to have been adopted by Ingen, moved the high court and got the case quashed. However, the Supreme Court set aside the order on August 1 last and directed police to continue the probe.

Taxidermist Ingen passes away at 101

MYSORE: Renowned taxidermist Edwin Joubert Van Ingen passed away in Mysore on Tuesday. He was 101.

Ingen, son of India’s First Taxidermy Factory founder Eugene Melville Van Ingen, was bedridden for a year and a half. “He was not well for a few days and died of old age,” said Ajith Lobo, a family friend.

Ingen’s grandniece Tilly Gifford, who was with him for a week, told TOI that her forefathers were from Holland. They migrated to Mysore as traders three centuries ago. Members of the family have lived in Mysore for over 300 years. Ingen’s relatives from different parts of India are expected to take part in the burial on Wednesday.

He will be laid to rest at Bartholomew’s graveyard, where his parents and brothers are buried, Lobo said. Ingen is a familiar name in taxidermy. For decades, the taxidermy factory set up by the family preserved shikar trophies worldwide. Their work, especially preservation of hunted tigers and panthers, won acclaim and is displayed the world over. Their customers included many Indian nobles and high-ranking British officers. The Indian government’s 1975 ban on hunting led to a decline in the Ingens’ business, which was established in the beginning of the 20th century. The factory was shut down in 1989.
