Case against Mallika Sarabhai

Ahmedabad Oct. 18. The Gujarat police have registered a case of cheating and other offences against dancer Mallika Sarabhai, on the basis of a complaint by a woman.

The Joint Commissioner of Police, Ahmedabad, P.C. Thakur, said an inquiry had been initiated against Ms. Sarabhai on the basis of the complaint filed by Manuben Shah that she allegedly did not refund a portion of the money for taking her along with her troupe to the U.S. for a performance.

The Naranpura police have registered an offence under Sections 420 (cheating), 120 (concealment) and 409 (criminal breach of trust) of the IPC against Ms. Sarabhai, the Inspector, M.K. Katariya, said.

Ms. Sarabhai said, ``officially I am not aware of any such inquiry, and if at all there is any, I have to say that there is not an iota of truth in it. I have come to know about the inquiry from the press only and have nothing to comment until I get the things officially.''

She warned of strict legal action ``as I have told earlier also that there is no truth in it''.

Ms. Sarabhai, who is also the Director of Darpana Academy of Performing Arts here, had applied for visas for U.S. and Brazil in December last for her troupe to participate in `Folklore Arts in World Fest- 2003'. The visas were refused by the Consulates-General of both countries. — PTI
