An unemployed man pleads not guilty to 44 charges of cheating.
Aravind Singh, 23, who was charged with cheating, lost his cool and yelled at a group of photographers who tried to take pictures of him as he arrived at the Magistrate Court in Penang on Thursday.
Clad in an orange lock up attire, Aravind shouted “enough” twice as photographers continued to capture his face which he couldn’t cover as both his hands were handcuffed.
The accused from Bayan Lepas pleaded not guilty to 44 charges of cheating involving a non-existent investment scheme.
He was charged for cheating V Vekneswaran, 26, and S Dievendran, 28, by asking them to bank in a total of RM68,000 to his CIMB bank account for a Focus Capital Growth scheme that did not exist.
The offence was allegedly committed in Seremban and Nilai between March to June this year.
The accused was charged under Section 420 of the Penal Code, which carries a maximum jail term of 10 years, whipping and fine, upon conviction.
The court allowed bail of RM32,000 for all the charges and set Oct 13 for re-mention.
