Interior designer Sussanne Khan, an ex-wife of Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan, was on Saturday booked by the Goa Police in an alleged case of cheating, news agency ANI reported.
Real estate firm Emgee Properties accused Khan of projecting herself as an architect in order to win a contract with the company. The company claims that they made a payment of Rs 1.87 crore to her in 2013 but her work wasn’t up to the mark.
According to a report in The Times of India, the company had asked Khan to furnish details about her registration number with the Council of Architecture but she failed to do so. Upon checking with the council, they were informed that she wasn’t registered. The Indian Express could not independently verify the claims.
Police sub-inspector Rashmi Bhaidkar has registered the case under Section 420 (cheating) of the Indian Penal Code. More details are awaited.
Managing partner of Emgee Properties, Mudhit Gupta, has reportedly filed the FIR after Sussanne allegedly failed to complete a construction at Siridao in North Goa within the decided time.
Quoting Gupta, the report said that the company had disbursed Rs 1.87 crore to Sussanne, believing that she is a professional. However, after Sussanne allegedly failed to deliver the expected standard of work, the company asked her to reveal details about her registration number with the Council of Architecture.
