Last week, Hina Khan made headlines after she was accused of a fraud of jewellery worth Rs 12 lakh. However, the actress was quick to take charge and refute all rumours. She also slammed a legal notice on the jewellery brand for tarnishing her name. Now, another Bigg Boss season 11 contestant is making headlines for cheating. We are talking about Bandgi Kalra.
She has been accused of cheating a city-based engineering student by posting a fake advertisement. According to reports in Deccan Chronicle, Yuvraj Singh Yadav lodged a complaint claiming that Bandgi had posted a fake advertisement of an iPhone X on Instagram on behalf of two Delhi-based firms – Different Collection and Nexafation.com. This made Yadav book an iPhone X for Rs 61,000 as the original one costs over Rs 83,000. Following the agreement, Yuvraj soon made a transaction of Rs 13,000 to a PayTM account linked to the number 6359007813. But later, when he checked Bandgi’s account, the ad was deleted. This aroused suspicion in Yadav’s mind. However, the seller, who shared his Whatsapp number, promised that the product will reach him through courier by Blue Dart. When the courier finally arrived and Yadav paid the remaining amount, he received a dummy iPhone X inside the package. Soon he filed a police complaint at Marathahalli police station in Bengaluru. Marathahalli Police Inspector, Sadiq Pasha, told the portal, “We have sent an email to Kalra and have summoned her. Though we are not sure of her exact involvement in the incident, she has promoted the product on her Instagram account. Though she has deleted the post, the victim has submitted the screenshot.”
However, Bandgi has not yet responded to the allegations. For the uninitiated, Delhi-based Bandgi made an entry in the Bigg Boss house as a commoner and repeatedly made headlines for her love affair with co-contestant, Puneesh Sharma.
