SpiceJet on Tuesday mentioned the grievance of alleged fraud filed by a person in opposition to airline’s Chairman Ajay Singh was “fully bogus” and a defamation swimsuit might be filed in opposition to the complainant.

Gurugram police on Monday mentioned an FIR has been filed in opposition to Singh, who’s the Chairman and Managing Director of SpiceJet, primarily based on a grievance by one Amit Arora for allegedly duping him on the pretext of allotting shares of the corporate.

“A frivolous, mischievous, and fully bogus grievance has been filed by a liquor vendor Amit Arora with the Gurugram police with an intention to harm SpiceJet and Ajay Singh’s picture,” an airline spokesperson mentioned in an announcement.

In keeping with the grievance, Singh had delivered a faux depository instruction slip for 10 lakh shares to Arora. This was for the companies offered by Arora to him.

The airline spokesperson additionally mentioned neither Singh nor any individual involved from the airline has ever met the complainant and that there isn’t any written settlement between them.

“We’re assured that the police investigation will show the identical and the FIR might be quashed. A defamation swimsuit might be filed in opposition to the complainant by SpiceJet and Singh,” the spokesperson mentioned.

Shares of SpiceJet have been down 0.64 per cent at Rs 38.85 apiece in morning commerce on BSE.
