Kerala Crime Branch has filed a case against Bollywood actress Sunny Leone under sections of cheating (IPC 420), and criminal breach of trust (IPC 406). The police have also added the actress’ husband Daniel Weber and her manager Sunny Rajani in the chargesheet, where Sunny is the first accused. Reportedly, the police will question her again in this regard.

The Kerala High Court on Wednesday had restrained the Kerala police from arresting her and the two others in the case. A bench headed by Justice Ashok Menon issued the order considering the anticipatory bail plea of Leone, her husband, Daniel Weber, and their employee Sunny Rajani. Though Leone’s arrest was restrained, the court had permitted the Crime Branch to question her only if it is necessary.

The police officials, under the leadership of Crime Branch Deputy SP Emmanuel Paul, had called her in for questioning on February 6, concerning a fraud case related to a programme in the state. Reportedly, Perumbavoor native Shiyas claimed that the actress failed to participate in an event he coordinated despite having collected Rs 29 Lakh and filed a case on the matter with Ernakulam.

On the other hand, the actress dismissed the claims and said that the organisers postponed the event five times. She stressed that the lack of appearance was due to the lapses from the part of the programme committee. She also expressed her willingness to attend the event once the programme organisers reschedule it. On the other hand, the organiser alleged that she had not yet signed a document making her promise an official matter.

This has invited the attention of the police officials, as they also uncovered that there is no proof of the transfer of money between Shiyas and the actress. He admits that his name is not there in the document, adding that he is only representing the two people, whose names are there in the document. Following this new information, the Crime Branch officials will be seeking to question Shiyas on the matter.
