The Indian & Chennai Super Kings ace spinner Harbhajan Singh has alleged that he has been cheated by a Chennai based businessman for Rs. 4 Crore. 
 
According to a report by TOI, Harbhajan has filed a complaint with the Chennai City police against a businessman for duping him of Rs. 4 Crore.

According to Mahesh he had paid all the pending dues to Harbhajan.

Bhajji this year has pulled out of CSK team for IPL 2020 citing personal reasons. Since 2018 Harbhajan has been playing for CSK in the IPL and has been frequently traveling to the city.
