The Bombay High Court has directed the return of Rs 20 lakhs to filmmaker Rakesh Roshan, who was defrauded in 2011 by individuals impersonating as CBI officers. Following a call from the impersonators in May 2011, the payment was made in June. Upon receiving no further communication, Roshan filed a complaint with the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) of Maharashtra.The recent court order marks the return of a portion of the swindled amount.

After being arrested by the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB), Ashwini Sharma from Haryana and Rajesh Ranjan from Mumbai admitted to deceiving other film stars as well. The ACB’s investigation led to the seizure of Rs 2.94 crores, including gold, along with substantial properties in Navi Mumbai, Haryana, and Dalhousie.
A report in India Today stated that on October 30, 2012, Rakesh Roshan applied to the trial court to recover his Rs 50 lakhs. In 2014, the court allowed him to retrieve Rs 30 lakhs, but held back the remaining Rs 20 lakhs. Dissatisfied, Roshan, represented by lawyer Prasanna Bhangale, approached the High Court, arguing that the CBI’s case indicated one accused took Rs 20 lakhs, while the other took Rs 30 lakhs. The accused who took Rs 20 lakhs, had no objection to Roshan reclaiming that amount, raising questions about withholding of the remaining sum.
