According to police, the woman filed a complaint alleging that she had organized a powerlifting competition on July 31, for which a jury had been formed and athlete registrations made. In the police complaint, she said, as the contest unfolded, winners of multiple categories were declared and their certificates, medals, gift baskets and cash prizes were handed out to them simultaneously.
“Around 8:30 p.m., Bobby Kataria arrived with his associates. I saw that he and his assistants came on stage and abruptly stopped the competition. There was chaos and fights took place, which we tried to control, but his assists ruined the competition. Fearing for their safety, I presented certificates and medals to female athletes and fired them,” the complainant alleged.
The complainant claimed that later she saw that one of the other defendants had taken over the competition and was presenting himself and his own contestants without paying an entry fee. “When I objected to this, the defendants behaved badly with me. They fielded their own contestants and declared them winners to receive cash prizes and also took other original records and material. After the competition, when I asked them for accounts of money, they told me that they would not return a single penny and threatened to kill me and my family if I took legal action against them. “, she alleged in the FIR.
She further alleged that the defendants posted abusive and obscene comments about her on social media platforms, due to which she had to leave her home.
A police officer, on condition of anonymity, said: “Eleven people, including Bobby Kataria, have been named in the FIR. An investigation has been launched.
The FIR was registered against the accused under sections 506 (criminal intimidation) and 509 (speech, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of the Indian Penal Code, police said.
