Performing rights official booked

Feb 28, 2011,CHANDIGARH:

Cops have registered a case of extortion and cheating against Arvind Sharma, who is an official of Indian Performing Rights Society Limited, Delhi. He allegedly took money for providing no-objection certificate (NOC) to the manager of Pashchatya Entertainment, Arun Sharma, for organizing programmes at Rose Festival.

Sources in police said the accused had taken Rs 33,000 from Arun for allowing the company to organize events during the festival at Rose Garden, Sector 16, and Leisure Valley. That was apart from the money charged for the actual licence.

In his complaint to police, Arun Sharma alleged that initially the accused had demanded Rs 1.8 lakh as fee. \'\'Later he said that if we applied eight days before the festival, the fee would be 1.25 lakh,\'\' he mentioned. The complainant stated that instead of taking full fee Rs 1.25 lakh, Arvind told him to deposit a demand draft ( DD) of Rs 66,150 in the account of IPRS and took Rs 33,000 from him without specifying any reason.

Sources in police said though the NOC has been issued to Arun Sharma and Pashchatya Entertainment was running its show in Rose Festival, a complaint was filed in this regard on Saturday night.

A case under Section 384 (extortion) and 420 (cheating) of Indian Penal Code was registered at Sector-17 police station.
