Following a complaint of cheating lodged by a local businessman, the Chandigarh Police have summoned actor Salman Khan, his sister Alvira Khan, and six other people.
According to police, in addition to the actor and his sister, those who were summoned to a hearing on July 13 to verify the facts of the complaint included the CEO of the Being Human Foundation and officials of Style Qutient (a licensee of Being Human Jewellery), who were all present.
Arun Gupta, a local businessman, has expressed dissatisfaction with the fact that he opened an exclusive store under the brand “Being Human Jewellery” in 2018 with a budget of Rs 2 to 3 crore.
Gupta stated that he had been assured that they would provide all types of support as well as promote the brand.
Neither the promotion commitments made to him nor the goods delivered to him in order to stock his store were met, according to his complaint.
Gupta stated that he had been assured that actor Salman Khan would promote the brand, but that this did not transpire.
He claimed that he had repeatedly contacted company officials, but that they had refused to follow through on their promises.
The complainant stated that the office that was to be used for stock collection had also been closed since February 2020, according to the complaint.
Gupta went on to say in his complaint that he had been assured that Salman Khan himself would attend the showroom’s grand opening and that this had been confirmed. However, he stated that his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma had arrived.
Gupta demanded registration of an FIR in this case.
