Chandigarh, January 11
A local court today framed charges against two Amway India directors, including a foreign national, in a cheating case. The third co-accused director, Stephen William Bedder, is a proclaimed offender in this case.
The charges were framed against William Scot Pinckney and Prithvi Raj Bijlani under Section 420 of the IPC and Sections 3 and 4 of the Prize Chits and Money Circulation Schemes (Banning) Act. There were eight complainants in these three cases.
According to the complaint, as part of a criminal conspiracy, the three accused started a multi-level money marketing scheme and cheated Ramesh Dubey, Narinder Kumar and Inderjit Kaur, co-complainants, by fraudulently inducing them to become members by paying Rs 4,400 each and further induced them to enrol more members for getting commission.
The complaints alleged that neither did they get the promised commission nor the amount paid by them to the company.
“... the accused cheated the complainant under Section 420 of the IPC,” said Akshdeep Mahajan, Chief Judicial Magistrate. They were booked at the Sector 26 police station for cheating.
“...If a member enrols more members, the member on the top gets more commission without doing anything, which is a clear violation of Section 3 of the Prize Chits and Money Circulation Schemes (Banning) Act; thereby the accused have committed an offence punishable under Section 4 of the Act,” the CJM said.
