It was in the month of July this year that Bollywood producer and late actress Sridevi’s husband Boney Kapoor, along with two other people named Mustafa Raj and the director of the Signature Cricket League - Pawan Jangid, was accused of cheating a Jaipur-based man named Praveen Shyam Sethi. The accuser went had on to lodge an FIR against the three. Now, months after, on Friday, the Rajasthan High Court has ordered the quashing of the FIR that was lodged against the filmmaker.
Complainant Praveen Shyam Sethi had registered the case at a police station in Jaipur against Boney Kapoor and the other two for allegedly duping him over Celebrity Premier League tournament by taking Rs 2.5 core. As per Praveen, he and his friend had a huge investment in the name of Celebrity Cricket League, which never really happened. He stated how the Producer convinced him that the investment will give him a double profit in the cricket league as he is one of the first investors.
Boney Kapoor’s legal representative has confirmed the news of the FIR against the producer being declared invalid; however, not against the other two accused. The order copy from the court is yet to come but the judgement is out.
In his defence, Boney Kapoor said that just because he knew Mustafa, he attended the press conference at his request. However, he denied claims of collecting any money from him. It was on September 16 that the Rajasthan HC declared the verdict after hearing out both the sides
