The Rajasthan High Court on Friday ordered the quashing of an FIR lodged against Bollywood film producer Boney Kapoor on charges of duping an investor of Rs 2.5 crore in the name of organizing a Celebrity Cricket League.
In June, Boney Kapoor, along with two other people named Mustafa Raj and the director of the Signature Cricket League – Pawan Jangid, was accused of cheating a Jaipur-based man named Praveen Shyam Sethi.

As per Praveen, he and his friend had a huge investment in the name of Celebrity Cricket League, which never really happened. He stated how the Producer convinced him that the investment will give him a double profit in the cricket league as he is one of the first investors.
A legal team from Boney Kapoor’s office confirmed that the FIR has been quashed against him but not against the other two accused. The order copy from the court is yet to come but the judgment is out.
In his plea, Boney Kapoor said that knowing Mustafa, he attended the press conference at his request but he never collected any money from him.
