Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant had been cheated by Haryana cricket player Mrinank Singh, who had just been jailed for defrauding an entrepreneur by offering to buy him luxury brands in watches and mobile phones at a low cost. Pant and his manager, Puneet Solanki, filed a lawsuit against Mrinank after he was defrauded out of Rs 1.63 cr by a bounced cheque last February. Here in this article, we talk about Rishabh Pant News, who Got Cheated Of By Haryana Cricketer Mrinank Singh.
The Saket court the week before filed a summons to the Arthur Road Jail in Mumbai to produce Singh, who was arrested earlier in the month by Juhu police for reportedly defrauding a city-based entrepreneur of Rs 6 lakh. Pant was interested in purchasing a Franck Muller Vanguard Yachting Series wristwatch and spent Rs 36.25 lakhs for a Crazy Colour Timepiece, as well as Rs 62.6 lakhs for a Richard Mille watch.
Pant’s lawsuit allegedly indicated that he was tricked by Singh, who supplied phony references in order to acquire the confidence of the former, as revealed by Pant’s lawyer Eklavya Dwivedi. The lawsuit was updated to include details on the cost of the smartwatches that were manufactured and to make note of verbal clearances between the parties for Rs. 1.63 crores.
Rishabh Pant News – We have also filed an application under section 143A: Dwivedi
“This is basically a case under the negotiable instruments act where the cheque issued by the accused Mr. Mrinank Singh has been dishonored on account of insufficient funds. To take the story back a little bit, how these two met, how it actually transpired and why this cheque was issued was sometime in 2020 or 2021. Mr. Mrinank Singh, who was known to my client Rishabh Pant through their cricketing commonalities. They met somewhere in the zonal cricket academy camp,” Dwivedi said.
“So in 2021, Mr. Mrinank Singh falsely misrepresented to my client that he has just started a new business dealing in luxury items and he could procure the same items for it at a very reasonable cost. Therefore, on this proposal, he transferred a sizeable account to Mr. Mrinank Singh and also parted with certain luxurious items, jewelry, etc which were also for, relatively high amounts, anticipating that the accused Mrinank Singh would be able to resell the same and give him huge profits for it.”
According to the information provided by the sources, the 23-year-old Singh has also tricked a film director and a number of hotels by providing them with phony references. However, Pant recently led the Delhi Capitals to a fifth-place finish in the points standings during the Indian Premier League 2022.
“He was not present in the last listing of our case before the magistrate. So, the magistrate has issued directors to the SHO over there (police authorities) to connect him virtually at the next date of hearing, which is July 19. He will be present that day and his statement will be recorded. We have also filed an application under section 143A for interim compensation. That will also be taken up and arguments will be heard on that,” Dwivedi concluded.
