An unusual incident happened in the cricket world. A 25-year-old former cricket from Haryana has been arrested for duping into luxury hotels. He also claimed that he represents Mumbai Indians in the IPL. Delhi police arrested him for an allegation on December 25. There are several allegations against him.
The Big Scam:
Mrinank Singh is the alleged player who played formally for Haryana in the U-19 stage. He also claimed that he represents Mumbai Indians in the IPL. In July 2022, the complaint was received by the Chanakyapuri Police Station in Delhi by the Taj Palace. The allegation over Mrinank was he stayed in that hotel for a week in 2022 and the estimated amount of the bill was 5,53,362. The former cricketer left the place without paying the bill. As per reports, when he was asked about the matter, he said that Adidas is sponsoring him and they will pay the bill.
Later an employee of the hotel shared the bank details of the hotel for paying the amount. The victim shared a transaction ID with them showing the payment was done but the hotel authority didn’t receive a single penny. And that was not the end. When the alleged cricketer and his manager were contacted, they told the authorities that he would send his driver with cash to clear the amount.
The matter continued again. Mrinank continued to make false payments. After receiving the complaint, a notice was sent to his house but he was not there. Then the police contacted his father. He said that they disowned the alleged cricketer. Tracing him was a challenge. He kept changing his location.
Another Big Scam:
The alleged cricketer made several scams. In 2022, he duped Indian wicketkeeper batter Rishabh Pant for 1.63 crore. Mrinank told Pant that he would start a new business where he could procure luxury items at a very reasonable cost. Rishabh transferred a huge amount. Along with that, he gave him several luxury items. After that Pant sent a legal notice. Mrinank issued a cheque of 1.63 crore. When the Indian cricketer tried to cash it, the bank gave a statement saying it had bounced.
Now, the police issued a non-bailable warrant against the alleged cricketer. Later they arrested him when he was trying to fly out of the country. On December 25, he was caught at the Delhi Airport by the immigration officers. He was trying to fly to Hong Cong.
