A case of cheating has been registered against Aam Aadmi Party MLA Manoj Kumar.

The FIR has been registered at the New Ashok Nagar police station on the complaint of one Vijay Kumar, who has alleged that the MLA took Rs 6 lakh from him for selling a plot using fake documents.

He has alleged that when he asked him to return the money, the MLA refused and threatened him. Vijay, in his complaint, has claimed he was the MLA’s business partner, so he believed him and gave him him the money.

Police said the complainant claimed he paid the money to the MLA in November 2012.

The MLA denied the allegations and said he was being framed. He claimed that earlier he used to work as a property dealer but that he wound up the business two years ago.

“When I worked as a real estate agent, I must have done hundred of deals, which were all genuine. I have not been contacted by police till now. I do not know any Vijay Kumar nor have I sold any fake plots to him. I am told that the case pertains to November 2012 so where was this complainant all these years,” he said.

The MLA added that this was a ploy to frame him as he had become an MLA.

“I will now approach the court and file a defamation case. This man is lodging a false case against me because I have now become an MLA,” he said.

Police said they were probing the matter.
