Bathinda, July 4

A couple has been booked for fraud after ex-IMA president, Bathinda, Dr GS Shekhawat complained that he had been duped of Rs 33 lakh.

Dr Shekhawat said the couple — Geeta Negi and Rajesh Negi — had not returned Rs 6 lakh he had given to them as loan and did not pay Rs 27 lakh rent of the school they were running from a building in his name.

He said he had bought land in 2013. In 2016, his friend Rajesh urged him to build a school on it after his wife Geeta, who was running a school in Bharat Nagar, had to vacate the building there due to a dispute. Dr Shekhawat said Geeta started running a school in December 2016. He said they had opened a common bank account for the school, but in 2018 he realised that Geeta had stopped depositing money in it. He said to grab his land, Geeta was defaming him by pretending to be a witness in a case against him. However, Geeta said the matter was in the court. — TNS
