New Delhi: Former cricketer Virender Sehwag’s wife Aarti has filed a complaint against her business partners on Friday. According to her, the partners borrowed a sum of Rs 4.5 crore using forged signatures. The police have registered a case of fraud against the partners.
Aarti Sehwag runs an agricultural products company. There are eight partners in it. She has complained that the partners used her husband Virender Sehwag’s name before the lenders and took loans on the basis of the goodwill the former cricketer enjoys. She had given two post-dated cheques to the lenders.
Those are not my signatures: Aarti
She said that the company failed to repay this loan. After this, the lenders filed a case against her in the court. During this process, it was revealed that her signature was used in the agreement—while she never signed on those documents.
This, Aarti says, stunned her. On the complaint of Aarti Sehwag, the police have registered a case against the accused under Section 420 (cheating and dishonesty), Section 468 (forgery), Section 471 (forgery documentation) and Section 34 (Acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of the IPC.
