He used to receive huge amounts of money in lieu of the job, which he never intended to do.
It was alleged that Singh along with his associates had induced the complainant from Punjab on the pretext of arranging tender for Food Corporation of India and agency of Toyota company in Punjab region and cheated the complainant of a sum of Rs 4.62 crore out of which Rs 1.62 crore was given through bank transactions and Rs 3 crore in cash.
