BHUBANESWAR: Odia film industry actress Chinmayee Priyadasrshini Nayak, who is accused of duping Padmaraju Ravi Kumar, a native of Visakhapatnam and works for JSW Steel in Navy Mumbai, on Wednesday offered compromise through one of her friend.
The actress had reportedly taken money, jewellery, laptop from Ravi Kumar promising him to marry him. Ravi Kumar told reporters that he had got a call from friend of the actress, who identified himself as Debaraj Sahoo, and he asked him to visit Bhubaneswar and take back the items.
“A few hours later, a woman also telephoned and after a brief argument, she too asked me take back the items,” he said. The youth also refuted the actress’s claim that he had taken a hand loan of 1.5 lakh from her and had transferred Rs 50,000 online to her account for that reason.
The actress had earlier rubbished the defrauding allegations while speaking to a local channel on Tuesday.Chinmayee, however, said that she got to know Padmaraju only four months back and had never made any commitment to marry him. “He has duped me and filed a false complaint. I will soon file a defamation case against him.,” she had told the media.
After Padmaraju accused Chinmayee Priyadasrshini of cheating on media on Tuesday, the actress told media, “I had given hand loan of Rs 1.5 lakh to the Vizag youth as he was one of the friends of mine. For this reason, he had transferred Rs 50,000 online into my account. When I denied accepting Padmaraju’s marriage proposal and asked for my money loaned to him, the youth got irked and threatened to tarnish my image.”
“The youth’s claim of gifting me gold chain on my birthday is also completely false,” the actress said.Chinmayee added she knew Padmaraju only four months back. “I have not cheated anyone. Instead the Visakhapatnam youth duped me and filed false complaint. My next move will be to file a defamation case against him.”
The Vizag youth had sent an email to the DGP and Twin City Police Commissioner saying that Chinmayee had taken Rs 2 lakh, laptop and gold chain from him with the false promise to marry him.
