India cricketer Harbhajan Singh has lodged a complaint with the Chennai police accusing a city-based businessman of cheating him to the tune of Rs 4 crore. Harbhajan was in the city recently as part of a Chennai Super Kings camp for the upcoming season of IPL that gets underway from September 19 in the UAE.
As per the complaint, the India offspinner has said he got introduced to the businessman G Mahesh through a common friend and he eventually loaned him the amount as a loan in 2015.
According to a report in The Times of India, every time Harbhajan asked Mahesh to repay the amount, he delayed and avoided. Then on August 18, the businessman issued a cheque for Rs 25 lakh which bounced.
Harbhajan then approached the police lodging a formal complaint against the Mahesh. The Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) has summoned Mahesh to appear for an inquiry.
