It has just been a few days that Koena Mitra had hit the headlines.
Well, Koena has hit the headlines once again and this time, the reason isn’t reallypleasant. The actress has landed herself in trouble and is facing a jail term of sixmonths! The reason- failure to repay a loan of 22 lakhs.A model named Poonam Sethi had filed a complaint against Mitra claiming that shehad borrowed the money from the former and had promised to repay it. Later, she hadgiven Sethi a cheque of 3 lakhs, which bounced at the bank. Sethi had sent a legalnotice to the actress, but she failed to make any payment. Hearing the case, a metropolitan court has held Koena Mitra guilty and has sentencedher to six months of simple imprisonment. She also has to pay 4.64 lakh, including aninterest component of Rs 1.64 lakh, to Poonam Sethi.Talking about the matter to a leading daily, Koena said, “The case is totally false and Ihave been framed in the matter. During the final argument, my lawyer could not bepresent in the court and hence my side was not heard and the order was passedwithout my hearing. We will be challenging the judgement in the higher court and mylawyers are in the process of appealing.” Earlier, actor and comedian Rajpal Yadav was also sentenced to jail imprisonment forthe very same reason.
