Hi, in what capacity your brother has collected the amount or is there any agreement entering between your brother and company........if there is any agreement then your brother is not liable.
i think he is simply a agent who has collected money from investor for investing in the company and he himself invested in the company.no your brother is not liable for cheating.obviously since your brother is involved in between he will also be made party to it.more over if some other facts are there kindly let me know

if as agent he made it clear to prospective investors that money collected is going to the company for investment purposes he cannot be held personally liable for wrong doings by company
Thanks for your guidence sir, My brother settled amount to the people who are all guided by him. If our government ceased the company means Is he eligible to get an settled amount (which given to the guided peoples).

thanks for your appreciation . it appears your brother guided many persons where to invest the money . it is not his fault that company failed . after all he lost his money too . he will also get settlement amount given by company to other affected individuals
If your brother collected amount from public at large as the agent of company and remitted the same to company for investment then he is not liable for the felony of cheating. As an agent his job was confined to collecting the amount. How the money was invested later on by the company was not within the province of control of your brother. Consequently he cannot be made liable under the law for cheating as he held no managerial post in the company.
Your brother also lost the money invested by him in this company. So he has every right to claim it in the same manner as all other investors do. He is not liable for any offence committed by company as the money was remitted to company, and not diverted to his personal account.
Since the matter is already settled, no further comment is required.
when the amount has been already settled by your brother to all the affected investors,then there will be no complainant
