The FIR alleging cheating and criminal conspiracy under the relevant sections of the India Penal Code was lodged on March 14 at the Mata Ramabai Ambedkar Police Station in Mumbai following a complaint received by AAP leader Dhananjay Shinde.

On March 29, the Bombay High Court extended by two weeks the interim protection from arrest granted last week by a sessions court in the city to Darekar in the cheating case.
