A Madhya Pradesh court has issued summons against Bollywood actor Ameesha Patel in connection with a Rs 10 lakh cheque bounce case, said the advocate for the petitioner on Friday.
According to Advocate Nitesh Parmar, Judicial Magistrate First Class (JMFC) Manish Bhatt issued the summons after registering a complaint against the actor under Section 318 (dishonour of cheque for insufficiency) of Negotiable Instruments Act.
"We had sent a notice to Ameesha Patel but she refused to accept it. So, we approached a court here, which issued a summon against her. She has to appear before the court on January 27, 2020, or else a warrant will be issued against her," Parmar told ANI.
The actor had allegedly taken Rs 10 lakh from a person called Nisha Chhipa around six months ago for producing a movie.
"Ameesha Patel gave a cheque worth Rs 10 lakh to Nisha Chhipa. However, it bounced," the advocate added.
