Bollywood actress Rimi Sen filed a police case against friend Raunak Vyas in March 2022, accusing him of fraud of Rs 4.14 crore. According to her, Raunak Vyas had promised her that she would get a lot of profit if she invested in his new firm related to LED lighting. When Raunak stopped answering her phone calls and refused to return the money, the actress realized that she had been cheated. Now the actress told the whole story in the interview that what happened when. Rimi Sen told that the hearing of this case is going on in the Bombay High Court. Soon a charge sheet will be filed in it. The actress told, 'About 3-4 years ago I met Raunak in my gym. He became my good friend, but he has cheated me. He is actually a conman and I have heard that he has cheated many people in Ahmedabad as well. I have a lot of money invested in this matter and apart from this, it is a little personal matter. He came to my house as a friend. He had dinner with my mother and then did this to me. I want to get this case registered so that everyone knows about such people. After Mumbai, he will choose some other city, rent a house there, rent a good car, show his big business and trap people in his net.

Rimi Sen said that she expects justice from the court

Expressing hope in the court, he said, 'I had lodged an FIR at Khar Police Station about one and a half years ago. And recently I got a call from CID Unit 9 that my case has been transferred there. Daya Nayak ji is handling this case and I am confident that he will deliver justice. My lawyer Milan Desai had filed a petition in the High Court to expedite the investigation. Justice Revati Mohite and Mrs. Deshpande have helped a lot in taking the case forward. The High Court asked to seize Raunak's property, but we came to know that he has no property in India. He has just bought things in the name of his wife or mother. But in a day or two, a charge sheet will be filed in the High Court and a warrant will be issued to arrest him. If he is abroad, it is the job of the police to send him to Interpol.'

Rimi Sen told that Raunak lied to her and took money from her

Rimi Sen told about the scam, 'He promised me good returns in light business. It started with Rs 20 lakh. He was giving me 9 percent interest on 20 lakh. After that he asked me to invest more and promised 12-15 percent interest. Gradually the amount became Rs 4.14 crore! He paid only the first installment of Rs 5-6 lakh and soon started making excuses, saying he had got Covid and his father was ill and all this. Initially I trusted him, as our friendship was very strong. But when he kept making excuses for months, I realized that it was a scam.'

Rimi Sen's Rs 4.14 crore stuck

Rimi further added, 'He targets different people in different cities. Takes membership to the best clubs and dupes people. He is a family man and my morals don't allow me to drag his wife into this. But she was supporting Raunak in this case anyway. Raunak had told me that he owns the house he lived in in Mumbai. But when the police went there, it turned out that the place was on rent. My principal amount is Rs 4.14 crore, if I get interest on it, which he has promised, it could be Rs 14 crore! If Raunak had surrendered, I would have settled by taking the principal amount, but now that he is actually absconding, I will try to ensure that this case reaches its conclusion.'

Rimi Sen and Raunak Vyas were good friends

The actress said, 'Ronk was my 4 am friend. Whenever I had any problem, I would go to him. He is very talented. He is a very knowledgeable person. He just misused it. If he had used his talent properly, he would not have become such a big name. I think if you want to sideline someone, you have to do it legally. Even though he has a family and a wife, I have legally sidelined him and shut down his business in India. There is already a lookout notice against him and I have full faith in Daya Nayak ji and the judiciary that they will deliver justice in this case.'
