“Shilpa and I have received no such complaint claimed by the gentleman in question,” says British-Indian businessman Raj Kundra

The tabloids were taken by storm when it was reported a few days earlier that NRI businessman Sachiin Joshi has filed a police complaint against British-Indian businessman Raj Kundra and his wife, Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty.

According to the reports, Joshi had claimed that Kundra and Shetty committed fraud during their tenure as directors at a gold trading company named Satyug Gold Pvt Ltd.

After days of hullaballoo regarding the reports published by various media outlets, Raj Kundra has broken silence over the row. In an interview with Spotboye, Kundra quashed all claims made by Sachiin Joshi, and even criticised the media for floating false news.

According to the reports, Joshi had lodged a complaint at the Khar Police Station, in which he has claimed that he was reportedly lured and cheated by SGPL's 'Satyug Gold Scheme', launched around 2014.

Clearing the air around the alleged ‘scam’, Raj Kundra said, “Just stating facts to correct a false narrative that's doing rounds in the media. This is with reference to the news about a complaint filed by an NRI (gutkha baron's son Sachin Joshi) for losses suffered, following an investment in Satyug Gold Pvt Ltd.”

Kundra continued, “Firstly and most importantly, Shilpa and I have received no such complaint as claimed by the gentleman in question. The website has all the relevant details and contact information for those who want their queries answered. With all the assistance we've made available, it is quite underhanded to say that there was no remedy.”

Raj Kundra also requested the media to perform a cursory fact check before publishing information, so as to not become an accessory in misleading viewers and readers. He also revealed that Joshi has not paid his dues. “All businesses have proper channels of communication and the whole world is dealing with us. Why does only one person need to reach media before contacting us? Very malicious indeed!” said Kundra.

The British-Indian businessman, during his conversation with Spotboye, also disclosed that a copy of a letter sent to him has already been shared with the local police station where Joshi filed a complaint. The letter clearly mentions that Joshi hasn’t paid his dues, and is blatantly lying and misleading the authorities by not contacting Kundra and his wife even once.
