Liquor businessman Arvind Singla, who is at large in a property-grab case, and three others were today booked on the charge of cheating the wife of his partner of about Rs3 crore. The other suspects have been identified as Tejinder Singh, Raman Puri and Vikas Kumar.

Vikas was arrested. He was produced before a court that sent him to eight-day police remand.

The police said the role of public notary Dalip Kumar is also under the scanner. On a complaint of Shweta Singla, wife of Arvind’s partner Deepak Singla, a case has been registered under sections 420, 465, 467, 468, 471 and 120-B of the IPC at the Sector 26 police station.

In her complaint to the police, Shweta said Arvind and her husband had set up a mobile phone firm, M/s Bell Enterprises, in 2016 with 60-40 per cent partnership, respectively. She alleged that when her husband Deepak Singla was injured with a gunshot at his home in 2016, he was admitted to a Mohali hospital. Arvind came to them at the hospital and obtained her signature on blank papers for handling business. Later, Shweta came to know that her husband was sued in a cheque-bounce case of Rs3 crore by a Gurugram-based company. The police said Arvind fraudulently obtained Shweta’s signature.
