Azharuddin in trouble

Azharuddin in trouble

A non-bailable warrant has been issued against former Indian skipper and Congress MP Mohd Azharuddin by a Delhi court failing to attend the hearing in connection with a cheque bounce case.

Azharuddin's counsel filed an application for exemption from personal appearance to the former cricketer saying that his client is busy campaigning in the Uttar Pradesh polls. But the court dismissed it as Azhar repeatedly failed to appear before it.

In 2008, Azharuddin has decided to sell a property in the posh area in Mumbai, which is jointly owned by him and his estranged wife Sangeeta Bijlani. According to the market estimates, this property is worth around Rs 5 crore.

Sanjay Solanki, a Delhi-based businessman, who wants to purchase the property has paid Rs 1.5 crore in advance to Azharuddin. Few days after this deal got finalised, Azhar refused to sell the property, instead promised to Solanki that he would return the advance amount and also issued a cheque of Rs 1.5 crore. But the cheque bounced. Solanki brought the matter to the notice of Azhar, and the MP apologised before issuing a fresh cheque. But the issue wasn't resolved as the cheque bounced again. This repeated for atleast three times. Fed up Azhar's behaviour, Solanki has approached the court finally.
