Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag’s wife Arti has filed a complaint with the Delhi Police against her business partners and others for alleged criminal breach of trust, cheating and forgery. She in her complaint alleged that her partners in SMGK Argo Export firm took loan of Rs 4.5 crore from another company by forging her signatures and later defaulted in payment.
According to First Information Report (FIR) registered with Economic Offence Wing (EOW), Arti has stated that she became partner in the firm by way of investment done by her after getting assurance and representations made by accused Rohit Kakkar who is son of another accused Prabha Kakkar.
“After Arti invested in the firm, it was decided by all partners in the firm that Arti would not look after management and affairs of firm on day to day basis. Therefore Arti withdrew her power to operate the bank account of the firm but she remained one of the authorised signatories in the bank operations,” stated the FIR.
“Arti’s partners hatched a conspiracy and approached Lakhanpal Promoters and Builder Pvt Ltd to take a loan of Rs 4.5 crore. Arti said the accused approached the creditor without any knowledge and consent of her,” stated the FIR.
“While approaching the creditor, the accused persons in order to get credit used name of her husband, Sehwag to show credibility of the firm and thereby influenced the creditors and availed the loan by executing forge tripartite agreement in 2016. In order to take loan from the creditors, the accused persons also forged her signatures. Both the accused had also issued two postdated cheques to the firm from which they took the loan,” said Arti in her complaint.
She said when she confronted the accused persons with the issue they admitted their act and before she could take any action against them they entered into a settlement agreement with the creditor.
The firm then took the case to court following which the complainant came to know about the loan and later found out that her signatures have been forged. “Following Aarti’s complaint, a case under sections 420/468/371/34 of Indian Penal Code (IPC) has been registered and investigation is underway,” said a senior police official.
