HOSHIARPUR: The dis­trict and ses­sions court, on Thurs­day, re­served its or­der on an an­tic­i­pa­tory bail plea filed by Bol­ly­wood ac­tor Surveen Chawla, her hus­band Ak­shay Thakker and brother Man­winder Singh in a fraud case regis­tered against them here.

On the com­plaint of Satya Pal Gupta of Phag­wara road, the po­lice, regis­tered a fraud case against the ac­tor and oth­ers for al­legedly dup­ing him of ₹40 lakh.

Ad­vo­cate Kan­walvir Singh Kang of the Pun­jab and Haryana high court moved bail pleas, which were fixed for hear­ing in the court of Hoshiarpur ses­sions judge SK Arora.

The court, af­ter hear­ing coun­sel of both the par­ties, didn’t give any im­me­di­ate in­terim re­lief to Surveen Chawla and her hus­band re­gard­ing stay of their ar­rest and re­served its or­der for May 21.

Sat­pal, in his com­plaint, said his son Pankaj Gupta had come in con­tact with Surveen Chawla and Ak­shay Thakker (whom she later mar­ried) in 2014 through her Chandi­garh-based brother Man­winder and had con­vinced him to in­vest in a Hindi movie ‘Nil Bat­tey San­nata’ through pro­duc­tion com­pany JAR Pictures, Mum­bai.

“They wanted us to in­vest ₹1 crore, say­ing the more we in­vest, the more profit we will reap. But, we gave them ₹51 lakh. They promised to re­turn the money within six months but till date they have not re­turned even a penny,” stated Gupta.
