A Kolkata-based company has filed a police complaint against Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty alleging that it was fraudulently induced to invest Rs.9 crore in a company run by her, police said on Sunday.

Police have initiated a case against Ms Shetty and Ripu Sudan Kundra of Essential Sports and Media Private Limited following the complaint by M.K. Media Private Limited’s additional director Debashis Guha.

“We have registered a case against Shilpa and her company on the charges of criminal breach of trust, cheating, extortion, criminal intimidation and criminal conspiracy,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police Murli Dhar said.

According to the complaint, “Shilpa and others allegedly induced the complainant company to invest a sum of Rs.9 crore with the promise of 10 times return against the invested amount within two years”.

The complainant company has also claimed that against the investment of Rs.9 crore, it was allotted 30 lakh equity shares which were subsequently reported to be bogus, said Mr Dhar.

The Kolkata-based company earlier filed a civil suit before the Calcutta High Court, claiming refund of the Rs.9 crore it was “fraudulently induced” to invest in Ms Shetty’s company.
