In the past few months, many Bollywood stars have been falling prey to crimes like duping and underworld threats. Akshaye Khanna, who has been away from Bollywood for a while now, was being duped by a Bengali couple for about Rs. 50 lakh. The cheating case was registered recently at Malabar Hill Police Station after which it was transferred to the crime branch.
Apparently, the husband-wife duo, who bonded with the actor at a party, convinced him to invest Rs. 50 lakhs for their company Intex Innijet Private Limited. Moreover, they also promised Akshaye that his money will be doubled in a year. The actor waited for more than a year for his investment to double up but the couple, thereafter refused to answer his queries or respond to his calls. Now, the actor has filed a complaint against these frauds and ACP Rajvardhan Sinha recently revealed that there is enough evidence to register a case against the two.
The accused have been charged under Section 420 (cheating) and 120 (B) (conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code but are yet to be arrested.
