The contestant of current Bigg Boss season, Meera Mithun has been granted bail by the Police on Thursday.
The Justice G K Ilanthireyan granted bail for Meera with a condition that she must appear before the Teynampet Police in two weeks and deposit ₹50,000 in the court.
An FIR was filed by the Teynampet Police based on the complaint filed by Ranjitha Bandari, a beauty show producer.
According to the complaint, Meera obtained an advance of ₹50,000 for allotting a slot in a beauty contest which was subsequently cancelled.
However, Meera did not give back the advance paid which forced Bandari to file a criminal complaint claiming that Meera cheated her. Based on the complaint police registered an FIR under Section 420 (cheating) of IPC.
Moving the bail application, Meera claimed that the payment was for sponsorship and the cheque given by the complainant got dishonoured. She alleged that the complaint was filed due to professional enmity.
“I am innocent and I was falsely implicated in the case for no reason,” Meera said.
Claiming that she has no criminal antecedent, she undertook to cooperate with the investigation and abide by any condition imposed by the court.
