The legal battle between Anand Rai’s logistics firm Quickdel Logistics and ecommerce company Snapdeal seems to be getting more fiercer with every passing day. In response to the recently filed complaints by Quickdel, Snapdeal has finally sent a legal notice to the company to withdraw its claims against the ecommerce firm.
As per media reports, the notice sent to Quickdel mentions, “Withdraw the notice dated October 4, 2017, within three working days, failing which it will take all necessary steps to initiate all available civil and criminal remedies against Quickdel and its senior management.”
On October 4, 2017, Quickdel had sent a legal notice worth $45.8 Mn (INR 300 Cr) to the ecommerce firm founders, Kunal Bahl and Rohit Bansal, and parent company, Jasper Infotech for criminal breach of trust against GoJavas which resulted in the erosion of the value of Quickdel.
On October 25, 2017, Quickdel again filed a fresh complaint against the ecommerce firm and its logistics subsidiary Vulcan Express. This time Anand Rai again accused the company founders of criminal breach of trust, cheating, intellectual property theft, theft of trade secrets and data and misappropriation of funds, among others.
On both these events, a Snapdeal spokesperson called these allegations baseless, an uninformed and frivolous attempt at extortion. Snapdeal also threatened Quickdel to take legal action against its (said to be) false allegations.
An email sent to Snapdeal did not elicit any response till the time of publication.
