Following the complaint by Indian School of Business (ISB) business manager, Mandanjit Singh Randhawa, the district police have booked former associate director Deepak Hedau, 37, of the department of ‘master plan projects’ of ISB for criminal breach of trust here on Tuesday.

Police said that accused joined as an assistant director on August 31, 2015. Following the termination of his services after a meeting on March 10, 2016, accused was to hand over his car back to the institute, within 30 days.

In accordance to the terms of car lease policy, the accused had opted for a Tata Safari car as an official vehicle to move around for the institute work. However, after cancellation of his services, Deepak didn’t return the vehicle to the institute concerned, even after the institute officials wrote to him in this regard.

Randhawa met senior superintendent of police (SSP) Kuldeep Singh Chahal regarding the matter, and had given a written complaint. Following this, a case was registered against the former assistant director.

Sohana station house officer (SHO) Manjit Singh said that the former director is a native of Rameshwar Vihar in Chennai, and has been booked under Section 408 (criminal breach of trust by clerk or servant) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

He added that during his stay in Chandigarh, he was residing at Sector 80. Accused is still absconding and police have started investigation into the matter.
