A Nerul resident, Vivek Sangitranjan, lodged a complaint against one Avinash Mishra saying he had cheated him after promising to secure a Rs 3-crore loan. Mishra would allegedly often offer his help to his targets to secure crores of rupees of loan for their business ventures, charge advance commission from them and then disappear with the money. Mishra had asked for Rs 6 lakh advance fee from Vivek who had prepared a demand draft of the amount. The DD was kept with a guarantor, Surekha Khot, the complaint stated. Khot is reportedly a close relative of Dawood Ibrahim.
When Mishra and Surekha had a dispute over the distribution of the commissioned money, Surekha called up Haseena for help and she instructed Mishra to come to her residence in Nagpada to "sort out the row".
By that time, Vivek had learnt that Mishra had cheated other people after making similar promises he tried to get back his money. But, when Surekha and Mishra refused to listen to his requests without taking it seriously, he realised that he too became their victim.
Vivek lodged a complaint with the Navi Mumbai crime branch, which verified the facts and then forwarded the matter to the Nerul police for further action. The Nerul police said they had arrested Mishra in a different case and he was in their custody. An officer there confirmed about Vivek's complaint but refused to comment on Parker's role in the case, stating that their investigation was on and they could not share the details. Vivek said he had mentioned Mishra, Surekha and her husband Akthar who had conspired to cheat him. Parker was not named in the case.
Last time Haseena was arrested in an extortion case was in 2007 when she had kept a demand draft (DD) with her as a guarantor and later, encashed it by threatening the parties involved. It was the first time that the police learnt how secretly she was involved in illegal activities and conducted "darbars" to sort out business disputes.
