Actress Genelia has been summoned by the Andhra Pradesh High Court today (April 18, 2012) on a land cheating case.The court ordered the actress to appear before the court personally or through her lawyer on or before April 25th. Genelia involved in a cheating case related to the purchase of a house from a real estate company called Anjaniputra Infrastructure Pvt Ltd (APiPL) for which she was brand ambassador.The Court asked her to explain why her name should not be included in the first information report (FIR).
She is in trouble because of a petition filed by Tirupataiah, a customer who bought a duplex house from real estate company Anjaniputra Infrastructure Pvt Ltd (APiPL). He alleged that police had not complied with a lower court’s order to file a case against Genelia and five directors of the company for defaulting on giving him possession of the duplex house. Tirupathaiah alleged that the police registered an FIR against directors of the real estate firm but left out Genelia. The Nampally court, on his petition, last month directed Saifabad police to register a case. Tirupataiah alleged that Genelia as the brand ambassador lured customers to the company by giving it a clean chit for good management practices and thus had a role in the fraud. According to him, she had even claimed in the promotion that she was one the directors of the company and bought plots in the venture.
