Gurugram-based Quickdel Logistics which owns logistics venture GoJavas has filed a fresh complaint against Jasper Infotech owned ecommerce firm Snapdeal and its logistics subsidiary Vulcan Express. Reportedly, Anand Rai, founder of GoJavas has alleged Snapdeal founders Kunal Bahl and Rohit Bansal for the criminal breach of trust, cheating, intellectual property theft, theft of trade secrets and data and misappropriation of funds, among others.
The complaint was filed with the Delhi Police’s Economic Offences Wing (EOW) on October 25, 2017. As stated by Rai in a media statement, “We expect a First Information Report to be filed over the next few days. There has been a breach of trust, and they have maligned the name of GoJavas.“
Earlier this month, Quickdel Logistics also sent a $45.8 Mn (INR 300 Cr) legal notice to the Snapdeal founders and parent company Jasper Infotech accusing all three of criminal breach of trust. Snapdeal, however, had denied Quickdel’s allegations and called them baseless and unfounded.
As shared by a Snapdeal spokesperson, “These attempts by Quickdel Logistics Private Limited run contrary to the “Release and Settlement Agreement“ dated 31st March 2017 signed by it. All these allegations are baseless and nothing but an uninformed and frivolous attempt at extortion. We will initiate strict legal action in this regard.”
Interestingly, in June 2017, Snapdeal also filed a complaint against the former promoters of Quickdel Logistics, which included Executive Director, Abhijeet Singh, and former promoters Praveen Sinha, Randhir Singh and Ashish Chaudhary.
The complaint, as per reports, was filed on charges of cheating, forgery, conspiracy, criminal breach of trust and criminal misappropriation of valuable securities and for defrauding Jasper Infotech to the tune of crores of rupees.
