New Delhi : The Delhi Police Sunday registered a case against former top cop and Team Anna member Kiran Bedi for alleged 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 said.
A Delhi court had Saturday directed police to file a case against Bedi on a complaint filed by petitioner Devinder Chauhan.
Chauhan alleged that Bedi cheated various paramilitary forces and state police organisations on the pretext of providing free computer training to troopers’ families under the banner of her NGO India Vision Foundation.
Bedi said she was not surprised 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 caught in a controversy last month when it was revealed that she allegedly gave inflated travel bills to various social organisations and educational institutions that invited her for lectures.
She admitted she charged various NGOs business class airfare while buying the lower class airline tickets, but said the excess money went to her own NGO.
