A trader from Ahmedabad in Gujarat has filed a complaint with the Mumbai crime branch and cyber police alleging that he has been duped of Rs 3 lakh by businessman Raj Kundra’s firm under the pretext of making him distributor for an online cricket skill-based game, an official said on Monday (July 26).
He said the police are verifying the complaint and will decide accordingly on registering an FIR.
In a complaint filed online, complainant Hiren Parmar alleged that he was promised by Viaan Industries that he will be made the distributor for Game of Dot
The company didn’t keep its promise, following which he demanded a return of Rs 3 lakh he had invested, but didn’t receive a response.
The complainant claimed he had filed the complaint with the Gujarat cyber department in 2019, but no action was taken, the official said, adding Parmar approached the Mumbai police after Kundra was arrested for allegedly running a mobile application for distributing adult films.
Parmar alleged that many people were cheated of crores like him by the company, the official said.
Meanwhile Bombay High Court is set to hear Shilpa Shetty’s husband and businessman Raj Kundra’s plea challenging police custody and seeking bail on Tuesday in relation to the pornography racket.
Kundra’s police custody in the case comes to an end later today. The 45-year-old was arrested by the Mumbai police on July 19 along with 11 other people on charges related to the alleged creation of pornographic films
Furthermore, Crime Branch has also appointed a financial auditor to investigate into the money trail of Raj Kundra and Shilpa Shetty and over their alleged involvement in the pornography racket case.
On July 25, police had informed that four employees of Raj Kundra have turned witnesses against him in the pornography racket case, inflating troubles for him.
Kundra has also been named as the key conspirator by the Mumbai Police which has slapped charges against him under Sections 420 (cheating), 34 (common intention), 292 and 293 (related to obscene and indecent advertisements and displays) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) besides relevant sections of the IT Act and the Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act.
