Tiger Shroff’s mother duped of Rs 58.53 lakh by a kickboxer appointed as staffertext_fields
Mumbai: Ayesha Shroff, the mother of Bollywood actor Tiger Shroff, was reportedly duped by a significant sum of money amounting to Rs 58.53 lakh. The alleged perpetrator is a kickboxer named Alan Fernandes, who was appointed as the director of operations in Tiger Shroff's MMA Matrix company.
The company specializes in providing training in mixed martial arts and is managed by Ayesha Shroff herself.
According to the complaint filed by Ayesha Shroff at the Santacruz police station, Fernandes, a fighter associated with the kickboxing association, had been appointed as a director in MMA Matrix back in 2018.
It is alleged that Fernandes collected funds amounting to Rs 58.53 lakh, supposedly for organizing 11 tournaments both in India and abroad through the company. However, instead of utilizing the funds for their intended purpose, he deposited the money into his personal bank account.
The shocking revelation came to light after Ayesha Shroff grew suspicious of irregularities in the financial transactions of the company. Upon further investigation, she discovered the alleged misappropriation of funds by Fernandes. Subsequently, she lodged a formal complaint with the police on May 3, prompting them to take immediate action.
The Mumbai Police have registered a case against Alan Fernandes under various sections of the Indian Penal Code, including cheating and criminal breach of trust, among others. The authorities are now conducting a thorough investigation to gather evidence and establish the full extent of the alleged fraud.
Tiger Shroff, a prominent Bollywood actor known for his athletic abilities and action-packed roles, has not yet issued a statement regarding the incident. However, sources close to the family suggest that they are deeply disturbed by the betrayal of trust and are extending their full cooperation to the police in bringing the accused to justice.
