Sakshi Dhoni, wife of India's limited overs cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, has been named in a multi-crore fraud case and an FIR has been filed against her.
The case, under section 420 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), was registered against Sakshi and three others on the complaint of Dennis Arora, a resident of Gurugram's Nirvana Country township, according to a report in Dailybhaskar.com.
Sakshi, Arun Pandey, Shubhawati Pandey and Pratima Pandey are co-directors in Rhiti MSD Almode Private Limited, which has shares in Sportsfit World Private Limited, a gym and fitness centre. Sportsfit World, on the other hand, is co-directed by Dennis, and his father Vikas Arora owned 39 percent shares in the company, the report continues.
The directors of Rhiti MSD Almode Private Limited had decided to buy Vikas Arora's shares from him.
Dennis alleged that while the agreement was for approximately Rs 11 crore, the directors of Rhiti MSD Almode Private Limited have paid only Rs 2.25 crore so far, and missed the 31 March deadline for clearing the dues. A complaint has been filed against Sakshi and her co-directors at the Sushant Lok police station in Gurugram, according to India.com
Arun Pandey, one of the directors of Rhiti MSD Almode Private Limited, however, said that they had paid more than the shares Vikas Arora had transferred.
Pandey added that Sakshi had left the company almost a year ago and the case could not be registered against her. Moreover, as the case is pending for arbitration after the Delhi High Court’s order, no FIR should have been registered.
Sakshi has so far not reacted to the allegations. Police are investigating the matter and at the moment there is no confirmation of Sakshi’s involvement in the case.
