After a line of problems SpiceJet Airlines have faced recently, another one came up when an individual filed a complaint against their Chairman Ajay Singh. However, on Tuesday, SpiceJet Airlines referred to the allegations are bogus. They have said that they will file a defamation suit against the complaint.
On Monday, the Gurugram Police registered an FIR against Singh, the Chairman and Managing Director of SpiceJet. Amit Arora alleged that Ajay Singh duped him in the light of allotting his company shares.
SpiceJet spokesperson called the complaint a frivolous, mischievous, and bogus complaint. He also said that Amit Arora, a liquor dealer, and the Gurugram Police have the intention to defame SpiceJet Airline and its Chairman.
As per the complaint, Singh delivered a fake depository instruction slip for 10 Lakh shares to Arora for the services Arora provided. However, Arora claims that they are invalid.
On the other hand, the airline spokesperson said neither Singh nor any person from the airline has ever met the complainant. He also mentioned that there was no written agreement between them.
“We are certain that the police investigation will support this, and the cps will dismiss the FIR. SpiceJet and Singh will initiate a defamation lawsuit against the complainant,” added the spokeswoman. In the morning session on the BSE, SpiceJet shares were down 0.64 per cent, trading for Rs 38.85 per.
