Former Uttar Pradesh minister Raghuraj Pratap Singh alias Raja Bhaiyya's former public relations officer has lodged a case against him and his wife Friday for fraud and forgery, police said.

The case was lodged by Rajiv Yadav, who alleged that Raja Bhaiyya, his wife, his driver Rohit, his wife and the branch manager of a private bank had cheated him.

Yadav claims that the former food and civil supplies minister and the four had forged papers in his name to open an account in HDFC Bank and used it for "illegal" transactions without his knowledge or consent.

Yadav had approached a court after police refused to lodge his complaint. The court directed police to lodge a case against the independent legislator from Kunda and the others named.

A police officer told IANS that a case has been registered against Raja Bhaiyya under sections 419, 420, 467, 468, 470 and 471 of the Indian penal Code (IPC).
