Secondary kara dena aur salary bhi mat rokna – investor ko mat batana. Shashvat to Board: No objection in filing case against Ashneer.”

BharatPe on Thursday filed an arbitration for clawing back Ashneer Grover’s restricted shareholding and founder title.

The arbitration was filed under Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC) rules, reported news agency PTI. In case relief is is granted, Grover may lose his unvested shares and right to use the founder title.

Grover, who BharatPe has accused of cheating and embezzlement of funds, holds about 8.5 per cent of the company. Of this, 1.4 per cent is not vested.

Also, BharatPe sued co-founder Ashneer Grover and his wife Madhuri Jain Grover or damages worth about 88 crores ($10.7 million), summon issued by the Delhi High Court on 8 December noted.
