Rishabh Pant is a victim of Haryana cricketer Mrinank Singh’s arrest for falsifying business references

Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant had also been duped by Haryana cricketer Mrinank Singh, who had just been arrested for duping a businessman by promising him cheap watches and mobile phones. The left-hander and his manager, Puneet Solanki, filed a lawsuit against Mrinank after he was scammed for Rs 1,63,00,000 by a failed cheque last February.

The Saket court last week issued a summons to the Arthur Road Jail in Mumbai to produce Singh, who was arrested earlier this month by Juhu police for allegedly defrauding a city-based businessman of Rs 6 lakh. Pant was interested in purchasing a Franck Muller Vanguard Yachting Series watch and spent Rs 36,25,120 for a Crazy Colour Watch, as well as Rs 62,60,000 for a Richard Mille watch.

According to Mid-day sources, Pant’s complaint alleged that he was duped by Singh, who provided phony references in order to gain the former’s trust. The complaint included information on the cost of the timepieces created, as well as a mutual oral settlement for INR 1.63 crore.

According to the reports, the 23-year-old Singh also duped a film director and various hotels using false references. Meanwhile, Pant captained the Delhi Capitals in the IPL 2022, where they finished sixth in the points standings.
