Raj Kundra and Shilpa Shetty have been accused of cheating a textile firm owner of Rs24 lakh. The fraud case is in connection with an online shopping deal for a TV show, Best Deal. Ravi Mohanlal Bhalotia,60, has lodged the complaint against the actor and her husband.
“They bought bedsheets worth Rs1.5 crore from me in 2015. I handed over the items to them, for which they paid Rs1.44 crore in January 2016. When I approached them, they made several false promises and convinced me to give them another consignment of bedsheets worth Rs18 lakh in July 2016. But they never paid me for it,” said Bhalotia in a press report.
Bhalotia approached Thane police commissioner Param Bir Singh and filed a complaint. After conducting a preliminary investigation, the police booked the five people on charges of cheating.
