A Bhopal court has issued a bailable warrant against actor Ameesha Patel in a cheque bounce case. The district and sessions court, Bhopal, on Monday, issued the warrant against Ameesha, who was Congress’ star campaigner in Madhya Pradesh Assembly elections.

The case was filed by UTF Telefilms Private Limited and the court has asked Ameesha to be physically present during the next hearing on December 4.

Advocate Ravi Panth, who appeared for UTF Telefilms Private Limited in court, said that UTF Telefilms Private Limited has alleged that Ameesha and her company M/S Ameesha Patel Production had borrowed Rs 32.25 lakh from UTF Telefilms Private Limited for making a film. Under this agreement, she had provided two cheques to the company in lieu of Rs 32.25 lakh, which were declared bounced by bank officials.
