Bengaluru: E-commerce major Flipkart’s founders Sachin Bansal and Binny Bansal have been booked for allegedly cheating a businessman of Rs 9.96 crore.
The Bansals along with sales director Hari, accounts managers Sumit Anand and Sharauque among other employees have been named in the FIR complaint lodged by Naveen Kumar, owner C-Store Company.
"Flipkart returned 1,482 units but did not pay for the remaining units. TDS and shipping charges for those units too were not paid. When asked to clear the dues, Flipkart falsely claimed it had returned 3,901 units. By not clearing the dues, they have cheated me to the tune of Rs 9,96,21,419," the FIR against Flipkart founders read.
As per Naveen, he had entered into a contract with Flipkart to supply laptops and other electronic goods, and had supplied 14,000 laptops to the company between June 2015 and June 2016. Some of the units were returned, but Flipkart still owed him Rs 9.96 crore, Naveen has alleged.
