The complaint stated that the actress had borrowed Rs 22 Lakh from Sethi and she failed to return the money back. The court found the actress guilty for dishonoring the cheque of Rs 3 Lakh and directed Mitra to pay Rs 4.64 Lakh as compensation.

The court also noted that if the actress fails to pay back the compensation, she will have to face 3 months of an additional jail sentence.

Koena Mitra while speaking a news agency denied any wrongdoing and will be taking the matter to the higher court for relief. She said, "It is a court matter, so obviously we will go to the higher court to challenge the order. The higher court will give us an order (and) only then can we talk about it. Right now, I don't have anything to say except that it's a fraud case and I am being framed."

She further stated that her lawyer was not present during the judgment passed by the magistrate Ketaki Chavan. She claimed that the order was passed without her argument being presented during the hearing.

"My lawyers are preparing to challenge the order in the higher court. My advocate has to appear for the final argument. The magistrate did not give me a chance to produce my arguments", said the actress.

Ketaki Chavan, the magistrate dismissed the arguments submitted by Koena Mitra's lawyer which claimed that Sethi was a small-time model and was unable to lend Rs 22 Lakh to her client. The lawyer had also claimed that the actress has been framed in the false case due to personal enmity between the two parties.
