Defrauding Cases

Duping the Taj Palace Hotel in Delhi

In 2022, Mrinank booked a suite at the Taj Palace Hotel in Delhi for a week. During checkout, he told the hotel staff that he was a cricketer and was sponsored by Adidas, so the company would be paying the bill amounting to Rs. 5.53 lakhs. The hotel staff was convinced by him and shared their bank details with him. Mrinank then showed a transaction ID of Rs. 2 lakhs and left the hotel. However, the ID turned out to be fake. The hotel staff then called him several times, asking him to clear his dues. Mrinank, however, gave false promises every time and later switched off his phone. A complaint was filed against him for the same by the hotel.

Cheating Rishabh Pant

Mrinank Singh met the Indian cricketer Rishabh Pant through sports at a zonal cricket academy camp. In 2021, he approached Rishabh, saying that he had started a new business dealing in luxury items and that he could procure luxury items like watches for Pant at a very reasonable cost. Rishabh then transferred a good amount of money to Mrinank’s account to procure expensive watches. Mrinank also took some jewellery and other luxury items belonging to Pant, saying that he would sell them for huge profits. When Mrinank was unable to provide the said items to Rishabh, he issued a legal notice against Singh and a mutual settlement was made at Rs 1.63 crores. Although Mrinank issued a cheque to Pant amounting to Rs. 1.63 crores, when Pant tried to cash it, the cheque bounced due to insufficient funds. A complaint was made to the police by Rishabh for the same.

Defrauding a Travel Agent from Jalandhar, Punjab

Mrinank was also accused of duping a Jalandhar-based travel agent of Rs. 5.76 lakhs by pretending to be the ADGP of Chandigarh. He was allegedly arrested for the same in August 2023 but was later released on bail.

Cheating a Film Director

Mrinank met a film director (who did not wish to be named) at a five-star hotel in Chandigarh and gave him an offer to invest in his upcoming film. He then fixed a meeting with the scriptwriter of the film in Mumbai. Apparently, a few days later, Mrinank called the film director and asked him to clear his hotel bills as he misplaced his wallet. While talking about the same in a media conversation, the film director said,

He asked me if I could transfer Rs 25,000 to him. I felt a little suspicious, but I was busy, so I transferred the amount.”

Although Singh promised to pay back the amount to the film director, he kept delaying it and never paid it back.

Other Cheating Cases

Mrinank’s other victims include young women, cab drivers, bars, restaurants, and small eating outlets. Very similar to how he duped the Indian cricketer Rishabh Pant, Mrinank cheated a Mumbai-based businessman of Rs. 6 lakhs on the pretext of arranging expensive watches and mobile phones for him at a reasonable cost. However, later Mrinank stopped answering his calls. Apparently, the two met on Instagram in 2018, became friends, and attended various parties together. The businessman resides in Juhu in Mumbai. Two other criminal cases were registered against him in Karnal and Mohali.


Mrinank was arrested by the Delhi Police on 25 December 2023 from the Delhi airport while he was trying to escape to Hong Kong. Apparently, he knew that police was after him for his alleged cheating cases and had kept his phone off for a long time. To misguide the police, he made his acquaintances believe that he was settled in Dubai. In 2023, a lookout notice was issued against him after which he was detained at the immigration office of the Delhi airport. At the airport, he made an attempt to defraud the immigration officials by posing as Alok Kumar, Additional Director General of Karnataka Police. To escape the arrest, he called some senior police officials, saying that he required help to help his son Mrinank Singh who was illegally detained at the Delhi airport. After the initial investigation, the police revealed that many objectionable pictures of him with young models were there on his phone. Some material on his phone also hinted at him being involved in purchasing drugs and consuming it. The police revealed that he used to befriend multiple young women by posing as an IPL player.

Modus Operandi

Mrinank Singh wanted to live a luxurious life since he was a child and in order to fulfil his desire, he began duping people, restaurants, and luxury hotels. In one of his statements, he revealed that he used to make people believe that he was an IPL player who played for Mumbai Indians from 2014 to 2018 to create an impression on them. He often used the trick to lure women, cheat international brands dealing with sports accessories, dine in at various luxury restaurants, and stay at five-star hotels without paying the bills. He also used to defraud people, saying that he was dealing in luxury items like mobile phones and watches and could procure them for his clients at reasonable rates. Mrinank also had several backup plans, if his initial plans failed.
