The stamp paper presented to the police during the investigation was also from Karachi.

The SHO further stated since it does not fall within the jurisdiction of Rawat police, the case was dismissed.

The case was filed on the orders of an additional district and session judge.

The complainant, Amjad Mahmood, asserted that the group promised him and his spouse, Iram Amjad, a seven per cent monthly profit and persuaded them to invest their money.

However, Mahmood reported to the police that he was denied his money and that Alam and Khan repeatedly threatened him. He claimed they used weapons to intimidate him and his wife.

SHO Zulfikar stated that while the company committed fraud using Sheikh’s name, it did not imply that the actor himself was involved in the scam.
