New Delhi: In IPL 2022, Delhi Capitals (DC) captain Rishabh Pant has been cheated of lakhs. Rishabh Pant has filed a fraud case of 1.6 crores against Haryana cricketer Mrinak Singh. Rishabh Pant has fallen prey to this trick of buying expensive luxury watches at affordable prices. It turns out that Mrinak is a professional swindler. He has been lodged in the Arthur Road Jail in Mumbai this month. That case is also about cheating 6 lakh from a businessman.
In January 2021, Mrigank told me and my manager that it had started a business of expensive items like luxury watches, bags and jewellery. He mentioned many cricketers to me and said that all of them are his customers. Along with this, I was falsely promised that he would get branded watches at a low price. Believing the story of the accused Mrigank, in February 2021, Rishabh Pant had handed over some expensive items including some of his luxury watches, jewellery, the total value of which is being told as 65 lakh 77 thousand, the accused has not returned it yet.
Earlier this month, Juhu police arrested Mrigank on charges of cheating of Rs 6 lakh. Rishabh Pant wanted to buy a watch from this player from Frank Muller Vanguard Yachting Series, for which he had given Rs.36 lakh. Along with this, 62 and a half lakh rupees were also given for a watch of Richard Mille.
Let us inform that Rishabh Pant has recently been made the vice-captain of Team India for the T20 series against South Africa. He was the captain of Delhi Capitals in IPL 2022. Due to not winning the match against Mumbai, his team could not reach the playoffs. Rishabh Pant dropped an easy catch in that match, as well as not taking DRS against Tim David at the crucial moment.
