Cheating case: Court adjourns the matter till April 24

New Delhi: The Patiala House Court on Saturday adjourned till April 24 hearing in the bail matter of a woman who was arrested for cheating a man hailing from Haryana’s Jhajjar district of Rs 50,000 in lieu of getting him a job at the Supreme Court.

The matter is being investigated by the Crime Branch.

In view of the matter, the Investigating Officer Mukesh Antil on April 11 wrote to the Metropolitan Magistrate Manish Khurana to “cancel” the bail granted to the accused in the “interest of justice”.

It came after the complainant Naveen Kumar contended that he was being threatened by the accused and her associates.

Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (CMM) Manish Khurana adjourned the matter as the application was not served to the accused.

On March 3 this year, Naveen Kumar lodged a complaint at Tilak Nagar police station against a woman for cheating.

In the First Information Report, Kumar had alleged that the woman in 2017 demanded Rs 10 lakh from him in lieu of getting him a job of a process server or class IV employs at the top court.

After the complaint paid the first installment of the total amount, the couple fled and later threatened to implicate him in a false case if he demanded his money back.

On March 10, the woman was arrested and a case was registered against the accused under section 420/506 and 120 B of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

She was later sent to the judicial custody and thereafter released on bail on March 12 on the order of Metropolitan Magistrate Sumeet Anand of Patiala House Court.
