Toronto (October 3, 2019) – Sharina Imran-Khan, a bookkeeper from Toronto, allegedly defrauded her employer BHI Holdings out of $2 million in a three year period. As a result of a fraud investigation of the Toronto Police, the 42-year-old was arrested and charged with fraud over $5,000 and laundering proceeds of crime on October 1.
