Alleged conman Davinder Singh Gill’s wife Kricpy Khaira, who has accused Punjab inspector general (IG) Gautam Cheema and others of molestation, is herself an accused in a cheque bounce case.
On March 18, the Baba Bakala court in Amritsar had issued nonbailable warrants against her in the case. However, despite her presence at several press conferences; the police did not arrest her.
The case would come up for the next hearing on September 30.
Judicial magistrate (first class) Manmohan Lal had issued the warrants against Kricpy, who was then the executive director of the SAS Nagar-based Bharti Education and Immigration Consultancy, and Navdeep Brar, director of the consultancy. Talking to HT, SAS Nagar senior superintendent of police (SSP) Inder Mohan Singh said, “We have not received any warrants against Kricpy. However, after once we receive such an order, we will take action as per law.”
The complainant, Gursharan Singh, a resident of Naranjanpur Fattuwal village in Amritsar, had filed the complaint in the court against Kricpy and Brar after a cheque for Rs 25,000 issued by them bounced. The complainant said the cheque dated June 6, 2013, was not encashed due to insufficient funds in the bank account concerned.
Gursharan said he wanted to send his brother Harsharan Singh to Australia, for which he contacted the Bharti consultancy. The company demanded Rs 3.5 lakh. He claimed that Rs 90,000 was paid in advance in two instalments, after which he was ensured that Harsharan would be sent abroad within six months.
“When the deadline expired, we demanded refund. The company issued two cheques for Rs 25,000 each, of which one was encashed and the other bounced,” Gursharan added.
Kricpy said she had not yet received any order regarding the non-bailable warrants, adding she was ready to settle the issue.
