New Delhi: The Delhi Police on Sunday registered a case against former top cop and Team Anna member Kiran Bedi for suspected cheating and misappropriation of funds in collusion with foreign companies and foundations.
“We have registered a case against her (Kiran Bedi) under sections 406 (criminal breach of trust), 420 (cheating) and 120 (B) (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (crime) Ashok Chand told IANS.
On Saturday, Delhi court had directed police to file a case against Bedi on a complaint filed by petitioner Devinder Chauhan, the reports said.
Chauhan alleged that Bedi cheated several paramilitary forces and state police organisations on the cause of providing free computer training to troopers’ families under the banner of her NGO India Vision Foundation.
Bedi said that she was not amazed by the development and it only strengthened her resolve to do more.
“I am informed an FIR is registered against me. For me now nothing is a surprise!” Bedi said on micro-blogging site Twitter. “It only strengthens my resolve to do more,” she added.
Bedi was trapped in a controversy previous month when it was revealed that she allegedly gave inflated travel bills to various social organisations and educational institutions that invited her for lectures.
