In a letter addressed to the BharatPe board, Ashneer wrote, “I write this with a heavy heart as today I am being forced to bid adieu to a company of which I am a founder. I say with my head held high that today this company stands as a leader in the fintech world. Since the beginning of 2022, unfortunately, I’ve been embroiled in baseless and targeted attacks on me and my family by a few individuals who are ready not only to harm me and my reputation but also harm the reputation of the company, which ostensibly they are trying to protect.”
He further adds that “from being celebrated as the face of Indian entrepreneurship he is now wasting his time fighting a long, lonely battle against his own investors and management. Unfortunately, in this battle, the management has lost what is actually at stake – BharatPe.”
Ashneer got himself into controversy as he was alleged for using abusive language against Kotak Mahindra Bank staff and fraudulent practices, although this allegation was denied by him. Ahead, Ashneer filed a plea with the Singapore International Arbitration Centre explaining that the company’s investigation against him was illegal but his plea was rejected.
