While Mohit neither gave money to Anil and Dilbag nor shares in the company.
Meanwhile, a person named Pradeep complained that he has shares worth Rs 15 lakh in Mohit’s company but he is not returning them. Anil and Dilbag came to know about this complaint. They colluded with the police and froze the bank accounts of Mohit’s company on the basis of Pradeep’s complaint.
At the same time, on the said complaint, DSP Amroz Singh’s reader Mandeep called Mohit and told him that a complaint has been received against him. The DSP has called him in this regard. On the same day, Anil and Dilbag called Mohit and told him that if he wanted to get rid of all these cases, he would have to pay Rs 50 lakh.
