Yesterday, news broke that a cheating FIR had been filed against Raj Kundra and actress wife Shilpa Shetty. The case against the couple allegedly accused them of cheating a textile owner, Ravi Mohanlal Bhalotia, of Rs 24 lakhs. Kundra has since reacted to the FIR.
“They bought bedsheets worth Rs 1.5 crore from me in 2015. I handed over the items to them, for which they paid Rs 1.44 crore in January 2016. When I approached them, they made several false promises and convinced me to give them another consignment of bedsheets worth Rs 18 lakh in July 2016. But they never paid me for it,” said a statement by Bhalotia, according to Pinkvilla.
Kundra, however, had a different story to tell. He commented, “The vendor is misusing his connections in various stations. We have tight contracts signed and on the contrary this vendor owes us money for not fulfilling orders. Best deal is unfortunately being wound up due to the business failing and we are following the laws of the land to close the various matters properly”.
“We are filing a case against the vendor tomorrow and my legal team will go and meet the officials who have registered this bogus case,” he added.
