As per a court directive, Sarabhai presented herself at the Naranpura police station, where the offence has been registered against her under sections 420 (cheating) and 409 (criminal breach of trust) of the Indian Penal Code.

Sarabhai, Director, Darpana Academy of Performing Arts, deposited her passport as per the court's orders.
Investigating official M K Katariya sought the information through some 'written queries' that related to 'some points' mentioned by complainant Manushi Shah.
"We asked her to furnish the information on the questions within five days," Katariya said.
