Bollywood actress Koena Mitra has been charged with a cheque bouncing case and will be serving six-months in jail.


A complaint was lodged by model Poonam Sethi wherein Koena has been asked to pay Rs 4.64 lakh, which also includes an interest of Rs 1.64 lakh.



The case dates back to 2013 when Koena borrowed Rs 22 lakh in the form of a loan from Poonam Sethi.


A report then quoted "Furthermore, in the present matter, said cheque is not dishonoured on the count of ‘payment stopped by drawer'. It is dishonoured on the count of ‘funds insufficient'. If at all, it is presumed that complainant took the cheques from the accused's house, which was blank and misused them, then the option of stopping the payment was very well available with the accused. But she did not do anything like this. Thus, the conduct of accused prior and subsequent to the dishonoured of said cheque constrained me to hold that this defence is afterthought and taken only to evade the liability."


However, Koena rubbished all the rumors and said in her defense "The case is totally false and I have been framed in the matter. During the final argument, my lawyer could not be present in the court and hence my side was not heard and the order was passed without my hearing. We will be challenging the judgement in the higher court and my lawyers are in the process of appealing."
