Panaji: The Goa bench of Bombay High Court has quashed an FIR against Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan’s ex-wife Sussanne Khan in connection with a complaint of forgery by a real estate firm.
A division bench comprising Justices F M Reis and Nutan Sardesai quashed the FIR filed against Khan by real estate firm Emgee Properties accusing her of cheating it to the tune of Rs 1.87 crore. The company had alleged that Khan falsely projected herself as an architect to secure a contract with it for a project at Goa.
The court in its verdict yesterday said that the FIR did not disclose any offence of cheating against Khan or that she had made any misrepresentation in the alleged case. Panaji Police had filed the FIR against Khan acting on the complaint of the real estate firm. In the petition filed before the high court bench at Goa on July 1 this year, Khan had also sought a direction to the police not to initiate any coercive action against her till the final disposal of the plea.
She had pleaded that the court should stay all the proceedings/investigation in the FIR till the final disposal of the petition. Khan had said that the criminal proceeding is manifestly attended with malafide intention and had been instituted maliciously with ulterior motive.
Soon after the court verdict, Khan took on to Twitter to break the news. “I have never made any misrepresentation and have always maintained the highest standards of ethics while discharging my work. Truth be told,” she tweeted.
