A Bengaluru businessman who last year accused Gitanjali Gems MD Mehul Chowksi of perpetrating fraud involving the loss of thousands of crores of public money, says the Registrar of Companies (ROC) did not act on a written complaint he sent to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s office.
During an exclusive interview with TV Today Managing Editor Rahul Kanwal, Hari Prasad said the PMO forwarded the letter to the RoC, which he said closed his complaint “without taking any action.”
“I don’t know what happened in between. I believe that Mehul Choksi has managed some people in the ROC,” Hari Prasad said.
Choksi is one of four people – and three companies – against whom a Punjab National Bank official from Mumbai filed a criminal complaint in January. The official said they had defrauded the bank, and caused a loss of hundreds of crores of rupees.
