The Jism 2 actress was questioned by Kochi Crime Branch on Friday at a private resort in Thiruvananthapuram.

The complaint was filed by an event manager R. Shiyas, who alleged that the former Bigg Boss contestant took Rs 29 lakh to attend inaugural functions, but did not appear for the same despite taking the money.

According to a report by news agency IANS, Sunny Leone in her statement said that she took the money but had no intention of cheating the event manager.

Who is R Shiyas?

R Shiyas, who hails from Perumbavoor, is an event manager and conducts events in Kochi. He had filed a petition against Sunny Leone for embezzlement of Rs 29 lakh.

In his petition, he alleged that Sunny's manager took money from him from the year 2016 onwards in instalments. Shiyas further said that the actress promised to attend five functions but it did not happen, and thus, he filed a complaint against her.
