Update: FIR filed against Flipkart co-founders and employees in Bangalore

A Bangalore-based laptop and computers vendor has filed FIR against Flipkart’s executives including founder Sachin Bansal and Binny Bansal, alleging that has not the e-commerce company did not clear dues to the tune of Rs 9.96 crore, reports the Times of India. The FIR was filed by C-Store owner Naveen Kumar and included complaints against senior director for retail Hari Kumar G and two accounts managers.

According to the publication, the FIR was lodged on November 21 and reads that Kumar supplied 14000 laptops to the e-commerce company, of which Flipkart returned 1482 units of the laptop, and did not pay him for rest of the laptops. Also, when asked for a payment of rest of the units,  Flipkart said that it had returned 3,901 units, which Kumar’s complaint says it is false. The FIR further stated that “by not clearing the dues, they have cheated me to the tune of Rs 9,96,21,419.”

Based on the businessman’s complaint, the Bangalore police have registered the case under IPC sections 34 (a criminal activity done by several persons for common intent), IPC section 406 (criminal breach of trust), and IPC section 420 (act of cheating).

Flipkart’s take

However, Flipkart has rubbished the allegations. In a statement, it said that “the complaint filed is false and baseless. Flipkart strongly denies all the allegations and averments made in the FIR in entirety.”

It added that “Flipkart is exploring all available legal possibilities to safeguard its interests, including but not limited to initiating proceedings for defamation against the complainant. The FIR appears to be nothing but an endeavour to harass and pressurise the company to succumb to baseless demands.”
