Actress Alka Kaushal, a popular face in the Indian television industry, who also played pivotal roles in ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ and ‘Queen’, has been sent to jail in a cheque-bounce case.
According to sources, Alka has been accused of not returning Rs. 50 lakh to an acquaintance. She has been blamed of money laundering and theft as her two cheques for Rs. 25 lakh each bounced. Her mother has also been sentenced to jail.
“Advocate Sukhbir Singh said that Alka and her mother had borrowed Rs. 50 lakh from an acquaintance, Avtar Singh, for a TV project. When Avtar asked Alka to give back her money, he was handed over two cheques for Rs. 25 lakh each, which bounced. Avtar then filed a case against Alka and her mother in Malerkotla court,” a leading daily revealed.
Alka is best known for her negative roles in 'Qubool Hai' and 'Swarangini' on the small screen.
