Kapade told Mishra that he had cheated his partner of Rs 5,59,000 but if he would give him Rs 3 lakh he will settle the matter. Mishra told Kapade that he had not cheated Singh and will not give single paisa to settle the matter.
“Kapade ne mujhe apne ghar pe bulaya aur bataya ki tumne Singh ke saath Rs 5,59,000 ki cheating ki hai. Tum sirf 3 lakh rupaye de do, main matter settle kar doonga. File band kar doonga. Maine Rs 3 lakh dene se inkaar kar diya,” said Mishra.

Maine refuse kar diya,” said Mishra.
Angry Kapade called Mishra on December 19, 2017 around 8.30 pm at Ram Nagar police station. Kapade asked Mishra to answer only in YES or NO if he had cheated Singh. Kapade threatened that he had several ways to get a a YES from him. Kapade took signature on a paper on which few words were written. Mishra smelled something fishy. He complained against Kapade through his lawyer Ashutosh M Dubey.
