S Sreesanth, Controversy’s Child, Now Booked In Cheating Case


Kannur: In a significant development, the police in a northern district of Kerala have initiated legal proceedings against cricketer S Sreesanth and two associates, Rajiv Kumar and Venkatesh Kini. The case stems from a cheating complaint filed by a resident of Choonda.

The complainant, identified as Sareesh Gopalan, has alleged that the accused individuals, Rajiv Kumar and Venkatesh Kini, solicited a total of Rs 18.70 lakh from him on various dates starting from April 25, 2019. They purportedly claimed that the funds would be utilized for the establishment of a sports academy in Kollur, Karnataka, in which Sreesanth is purportedly a partner.

Gopalan, who invested the money based on the promise of becoming a partner in the sports academy, has lodged a complaint detailing the alleged fraudulent activities.

The legal action against Sreesanth and his associates is framed under IPC Section 420, which pertains to “Cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property.” The trio has been specifically booked as the first and second accused, with Sreesanth named as the third accused in this case. Sreesanth is not new to controversies and has previously been involved in the slapgate incident as well as IPL 2013 Spot-fixing scandal.
