A senior police official said Kumar was called to New Ashok Nagar Police station in East Delhi for questioning in the case. Around a month back, a case of cheating was registered against Kumar following allegations that he duped his business partner of Rs six lakh. "This is an old matter related to land fraud. Questioning of Kumar is on as of now," Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi said.

Vinod Kumar had alleged in his complaint to the police that Manoj used to work as a property dealer before venturing into politics. The MLA claimed that he was Manoj's business partner and had given Rs six lakh to him to purchase a plot in November 2012 but he did not repay the amount.
