A team of police officials from Moradabad, Uttar Pradesh visited Sonakshi Sinha's house in Mumbai on July 11, 2019, in connection with a case of cheating filed against her.
An event organiser has accused the actress of not turning up for an event in Delhi at the last moment after accepting a booking amount of Rs 24 lakh.
The UP Police, assisted by officials from the Juhu police station in Mumbai, reached Sonakshi's home to take her statement regarding the case. According to reports, Sonakshi was not at her residence at the time when the police went to her house. They are likely to visit the actress again on July 12, 2019.
Speaking on the case, Sonakshi's spokesperson said, "In her nine years long career, she has only worked with complete honesty and sincerity. What this man is accusing her of is completely untrue and baseless. This is just a way of extortion by maligning her spot free reputation in the press and it is not something that Sonakshi and her team will succumb to. She is a thorough professional and we have been more than cooperative with whichever authorities that have gotten in touch with us because we have nothing to hide."

Responding to the allegations levelled against her, the actress took to twitter and tweeted that "An event organizer who couldn't live up to his commitment obviously thinks he can make a fast buck by maligning my crystal clear image in the press. There is full cooperation with the authorities from my end for the investigation to be conducted. Would request the media not to fan these bizarre claims of an unscrupulous man.”
After Sonakshi Sinha reacted to the allegations, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Amit Pathak spoke to a news agency and stated that they have received documents from the actor's advocate and the investigation will continue after they study the documents.
