Boney Kapoor has been granted relief as the Rajasthan High Court has ordered the quashing of a First Information Report (FIR) against the film producer. The case was registered after Boney Kapoor and two others were accused of duping an investor with regards to a celebrity cricket league. Justice Pankaj Bhandari ordered the quashing of the FIR against Boney Kapoor on the basis of the appeal filed by Boney Kapoor. However, the decision doesn’t extend to the other two persons, Pravin Jhangid and Mustafa Raj, who were accused in the case. The case will continue for the other two persons in the court.
The FIR had been registered after the complaint from Pravin Shyam Sethi at the Pratap Nagar police station on June 17. He had accused the trio of duping him of crores of rupees (Rs 2.5 crore reportedly) on the pretext of the Celebrity Cricket League. The court noted that Boney Kapoor was not directly involved with the case and there was no concrete case regarding the monetary transactions related to the matter. It was noted that Boney Kapoor had never stated that he was directly involved in the case. The other point made was that his name was used for the alleged new investments.
