Jalandhar, October 19

A case of fraud was registered against the owner of the city’s Head Quarter’s restaurant and his wife on Tuesday.

It is alleged that the couple had ordered gas cylinders worth lakhs of rupees in different outlets of the restaurant but did not pay their payment. When the matter reached the police, about a year ago, the couple gave cheques amounting to Rs 8.64 lakh to the gas agency owners but all cheques were bounced.

After a prolonged investigation by the Commissionerate Police, a case of fraud has been registered against the accused, Amarpreet Sidhu and his wife Ritu.

In his complaint to the police, Gaurav Kataria, owner of Prem HP Gas Agency, said in the complaint that there were three outlets — Head Quarter’s restaurant, Mahir Catering Services and Hospitality Concept Services — owned by Amarpreet Sidhu and Ritu Sidhu, residents of Jalandhar Heights.

According to Kataria, gas cylinders worth Rs 8,64,000 were supplied by them from time to time to the three outlets but the payments for the same were not paid.

About a year ago, when he gave a complaint to the police, the Sidhu couple reach a settlement by giving him two cheques of Rs 8.50 lakh but later when the cheques were deposited in bank, they were bounced.

The matter was investigated by the ADCP (Investigation). After the probe, a case under Sections 406, 420 and 120-B of the IPC has been registered against the owners of the restaurant at the Police Division Number 8.| The SHO said the couple was yet to be arrested in the case. — TNS
