E-Commerce Shop Timtara Shuts Down: Report

Electronics focused e-commerce venture Timtara has shut down its operations, reports Nextbigwhat.

This development follows the arrests of Arindam Bose and Timtara.com CEO Harish Ahluwalia on allegations of fraud amounting to Rs 12 lakh in April 2013. The police had said that they’ve received complaints from around 200 buyers, and around three complaints have been registered with the Economic Offences Wing and Janakpuri Police Station. In response to these arrests, Timtara had posted a notice on its website saying that false complaints have been filed against them by people hired by their competitors.It had also said that due to the above circumstances, they are withdrawing all discounts on the site. The current status of these cases is not clear right now, however the NextBigWhat cites a Facebook page - 'Timtara Fraud' which suggests that Arindam Bose’s bail plea was rejected by the sessions court and the next hearing is on May 4, 2013. However, we are not sure of the veracity of this Facebook page. Timtara had launched in 2010 and was run by M/s InfoSecure Consulting Pvt. Ltd. It offered products like Mobile phones, Computers, Camera, Kitchen Appliances, Gaming, Health & Personal Care and Home appliances among others.…
