Aarti Sehwag, former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag’s wife, has been in the news of late. Around a week back she was granted bail in a cheque bounce case! Now she has filed a cheating case against her business partners. She had filed a complaint with police in June
“The accused persons approached the creditors without any consent and knowledge of the complainant … and availed loan of Rs 4.5 crore from them,” Aarti alleged
She also said in her complaint that her business partners forged her signature on the tripartite agreement. They siphoned off a loan worth Rs 4.5 crore from another firm. They, later on, turned out to be defaulters on the payment. This all was done without her knowledge. Her husband’s name Virendra Sehwag also dropped in when she said that the name was used by her partners to influence creditors. The same has been confirmed by ANI in a tweet

Giving details in her statement, Aarti Sehwag said that two postdated cheques were issued to the creditors which her partners defaulted at the time of loan payment.
“Due to the default, the creditors invoked the arbitration clause and filed a complaint in the court. During the proceeding, it was shocking for the complainant to see her signature and partite agreement, which she had never signed,” it added.
Based on the complaint of Aarti, the police has registered an FIR against her business partners. The Sections 420 (cheating and dishonestly), 468 (forgery), 471 (using as genuine a forged document) and 34 (common intention) of the Indian Penal Code have been slapped against them.
