BENGALURU:  A 21-year-old engineering student has filed a case against the actress and Bigg Boss contestant Bandgi Kalra and two Delhi-based firms — Different Collection, Nexafation.com — for allegedly selling him two fake iPhone X.

Kalra is allegedly the ambassador of the firms. Yuvraj Singh Yadav, a resident of Munekolala in Marathalli, in his complaint, said that he saw a post on Kalra’s Instagram account about two brand new iPhoneX models for sale for Rs 61,000. He paid an advance of Rs 13,000 through PayTM and the rest was to be paid during the delivery. 

On Wednesday, Yadav went to a Blue Dart courier centre to receive the phone. After paying the remaining amount, he collected the parcel only to find two fake iPhones inside it. When he tried to contact the actress and the firms, there was no response from them.

He then filed a complaint with Marathahalli police. A police officer said, “Preliminary investigations have revealed that Kalra and Yadav were in touch over Instagram. She had shared details, including her email ID and the email ID of the firms.

We have also found that it is not a fake account. So, a special team is going to Delhi to question Kalra and the staff of Different Collection and Nexafation.com. Yadav has also shared the account details and phone numbers of the accused. Further investigations are on.”

Speaking to The New Indian Express, Yadav, a second-year engineering student, said, “I have been cheated. Upon the arrival of the package, I tried to contact them (firms and actress). There was no response. Then, when I told them that I have filed a police complaint, they asked me to withdraw the case and threatened to file a counter-complaint against me for blackmailing them. The actress, however, has not responded to my messages. I have borrowed money from many people to buy the phones.”
