Actor cum politician Ravi Kishan has allegedly been duped of Rs 3.25 crore.
Sources said Ravi Kishan, who is the MP from Gorakhpur Sadar and a film actor too, has filed a complaint at Gorakhpur Cantonment Police Station wherein a case of cheating of Rs 3 crore was registered by a builder.
The police have said that a complaint has been registered and appropriate action will be taken after the probe.
Section 406 of the Indian Penal Code has been registered pertaining to Ravi Kishan’s complaint.
The actor-cum-politician was allegedly duped by a Mumbai-based businessman, as per Kishan’s public relations officer. The MP had given the amount to accused Jain Jitendra Ramesh in 2012. However, upon nudging the individual to repay, he attempted to scam Ravi Kishan.
In return for the demand, the businessman handed Kishan 12 cheques of Rs 34 lakh each. But one of the cheques, after being deposited in the bank, bounced. After failing to convince Ramesh to return the favour, Kishan initiated the complaint and filed it with the police.
