It is alleged that he used the police to threaten petitioner

The petitioner Vijay Kumar Singh, a New Delhi tour operator, who ensures guests to the hotels, had moved the High Court alleging that the City police arrested him and forced him to accept charges, which he had not committed.

In his submission, the petitioner said that Khan, also the Chairman and Managing Director of World Resort in the City, had signed an MoU with him and owed him Rs 7.9 crore. But since several reminders did not help, the matter had led to arbitration for settlement, which did not help either.

The petitioner said Khan lodged a frivolous complaint of cheating with Cubbon park police, which was handed over to the City Crime Branch for probe. The petitioner said that the police on August 13 arrived at his Delhi residence and brought him to the City by flight and put him under judicial custody on August 14, after producing him to the Court.
He said that he went through severe mental agony with the police pressurising him to admit the charges, which he had not committed. He added that the police tortured some of the prisoners in his cell and warned him of the same treatment, if he refused to admit the charges framed against him.

He said that his wife, who arrived in the City on August 18 had to run from pillar to post to secure his release and sought a compensation of Rs 75 lakh and Rs 25 lakh to his wife for the mental agony. He also sought an inquiry against Police Commissioner Shankar Bidri, Joint Commissioner Alok Kumar and other three along with Sanjay Khan. Justice Ajit Gunjal, who heard the matter has ordered notice to Khan and others.
