The Delhi Police’s Economic Offences Wing has filed a first information report (FIR) against Ashneer Grover and his family based on BharatPe‘s allegations of fraud against its co-founder.
What Happened: The law enforcement agency filed the FIR against Ashneer Grover and his family, including his wife, Madhuri Jain Grover, as well as Deepak Gupta, Suresh Jain, and Shwetank Jain.
The payments firm had filed a criminal complaint against Ashneer Grover and his family in December 2022 saying he had defrauded the firm of ₹81.28 crore, among other things.
The FIR has been filed under eight sections of the Indian Penal Code, including those related to forgery and criminal conspiracy.
The businessman has been at loggerheads with the fintech firm ever since allegations of financial irregularities were levelled against him in January last year. By March of the same year, BharatPe had fired him as managing director.
