Bhubaneswar: A few hours after the arrest of Odia actor Pupinder Singh by Balianta police in a cheating case, the JMFC court here granted him bail after he was being produced before it today evening.
Earlier this day, Pupinder was arrested following issue of a Non-bailable warrant (NBW) against him and his wife by the JMFC court for not appearing before it during case hearing despite being summoned by the court.
At the outset, Pupinder was alleged for cheating the owner of SK Ora Pvt Ltd Company to the tune of Rs 90 lakh on the pretext of making an Odia movie and had deposited three cheques amounting to Rs 8 lakh, Rs 7 lakh and Rs 4 lakh as security. As the committed date of repaying the money elapsed, the lender deposited the cheques to get a part of his money back but the cheques bounced without being encashed.
Following the cheque bounce, the company’s owner lodged a complaint with the police and three cases- 64/63/13, 64/64/13 and 64/65/13 were registered in the court.
