An FIR was registered against former Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) MLC Haji Iqbal for allegedly not paying money to a contractor for the construction work of Glocal University, police said on Sunday.

Iqbal is the founder of Glocal University, a private institute located in Saharanpur in Uttar Pradesh.

The contractor, Karamjit, a resident of Yamunanagar in Haryana, filed a complaint with the police on Saturday evening alleging that Iqbal cheated him and did not pay the amount for the construction work of the university, they said.

The construction of the university had started in 2015 and it was completed in 2017. But Iqbal did not pay the money to Karamjit who had secured the contract to build the institute, Saharanpur Senior Superintendent of Police Vipin Tada said.

The complainant said instead the former MLC demanded money from him, he added.

On the basis of the complaint, an FIR for cheating, dacoity and assault was registered against Iqbal and his 11 associates at Mirzapur police station, police said, adding he is absconding.
