Sussanne Khan is in big legal trouble this time.
The complainant, real estate firm Emgee Properties, has accused Sussanne Khan of falsely projecting herself as an architect to secure a ‘architectural and designing services’ contract for the company’s upcoming Naira Complex project in Tiswadi, North Goa.
The complainant’s lawyer has said that his client disbursed Rs 1.87 crore to Sussanne Khan as per the contract, but she failed to deliver the project within the stipulated time frame and the firm found her work sub-standard. Later, the clients found out that Khan wasn’t even registered with the Council of Architecture.
Sussanne Khan, who has been booked by Goa police under section 420 (cheating) of IPC, however, has refuted the charges and deemed them ‘falsely motivated and preposterous’. She was quoted saying to DNA, “It is alleged that I have cheated Emgee Enterprises and misrepresented to the complainant that I am an architect. The said complaint is motivated and preposterous and has been only filed to intimidate me and pressurize me to withdraw the arbitration proceedings initiated by me in the first instance to recover my dues and damages resulting from breach of contract.”
She also added, “I am going to take the arbitrarily proceedings to the logical conclusion and instead of getting intimidated will respond to the frivolous charge in the most befitting way possible. Such wild allegations do not scare me. Rather it encourages me to stand and respond. The allegations are false and defamatory and I will take the appropriate action in accordance with the law.”
