When the date for registry approached, he kept on postponing it on one pretext or another," Baldev claimed.
"Later, he expressed his inability to get the deal matured due to some dispute with property owner. Thereafter, I asked him to return my advance payment along with penal amount. He issued me cheques which bounced," Baldev said, adding that "he returned just Rs. 1.35 lakh in the last three months and started avoiding me."
"Nearly 10 days have passed and police have failed to arrest him. It seems police is giving him enough time to get bail on some legal grounds. I feel myself cheated, firstly by Suba Singh and thereafter by district police," he rued.
Kapurthala SSP Sukhmindar Singh, when contacted, assured that he would look into the case and that justice would be ensured at all costs.
