The UT police have filed a chargesheet against liquor baron Arvind Singla and another accused Vikas in an alleged cheating case that was filed on a complaint of Sweta Singla, wife of Arvind’s cousin Deepak Singla.

A case was registered against Singla and other accused — Tejinder Singh, Raman Puri and Vikas — under Sections 420, 465, 467, 468, 471 and 120B of the IPC at the Sector 26 police station. So far, Singla and Vikas have been arrested.

Shweta Singla told the police that Deepak and Arvind Singla formed a firm named Bell Enterprises in 2015 in which Arvind Singla was a partner of 60 per cent holding while 40 per cent partnership was in the name of Deepak.

The company started the distribution business of mobile phones and other related things. She said when the company started facing the loss in 2016, Arvind allegedly got himself separated to avoid liability and made her a partner in the firm. She claimed that Deepak Singla was under great stress.

He was accidently hit by a gun shot at home on June 15, 2016, and was admitted to Fortis Hospital. She alleged that during the hospitalisation of Deepak, Arvind Singla allegedly made a forged partnership deed and got her husband to sign it when he was in the ICU and not in a condition to sign it. She alleged that Arvind put the liability of crores on Arvind fraudulently.

Bail denied

A local court has denied the bail of the accused Vikas in the case. The court has also denied the anticipatory bail application of Raman Puri. Shweta had named both of them in her complaint.
