Vastrapur police registered a case against a man based on a complaint filed by his wife, alleging he cheated her of Rs 2.54 crore by borrowing money from various institutions and making her the guarantor for them without her knowledge.

Vastrapur police registered a case on Monday under Indian Penal Code Sections 420 (cheating), 406 (breach of trust), 465 (forgery), 467 (forgery of valuable security, will), 468 (forgery for purpose of cheating) and 471 (using as genuine a forged document). The complainant stated that she had earlier filed a court case after she learned that her husband had an extramarital affair. The complainant is 41 years old, and had married the accused in 1999. They have two children.

The complaint states that on February 24, 2021, the woman received a notice from a private bank. On checking at its office on Sindhu Bhavan Road, she learned that her husband had taken three loans – Rs 11.67 lakh, Rs 25.34 lakh and Rs 25.42 lakh – worth a total of Rs 97.78 lakh from the bank.

The bank told her that she had stood guarantor for all three loans. She filed a complaint with Vastrapur police in 2021.

Later, she received three more notices from a private financial services company based in Bodakdev, from which her husband had taken loans of Rs 24.28 lakh, Rs 25.94 lakh and Rs 25.64 lakh. Four other loans had been taken from a private credit society and one from a private transport finance company. In 2022, she filed a second complaint with Vastrapur police for these borrowings.
