It seems like ousted BharatPe founder Ashneer Grover can't catch a break from all the lawsuits being thrown his way. In the latest, a second co-founder of fintech company BharatPe is also reportedly suing Ashneer Grover over "unpaid shares".
A report in Mint said that Shashvat Nakrani, co-founder of BharatPe, and who is still with the company, is set to sue Grover for not paying for the BharatPe shares he purchased from him. The report comes just one month after another BharatPe co-founder Bhavik Koladiya (no longer with the company) sued Grover to reclaim his shares.
Now, the shares are worth much more.
Grover quipped back asking whether lawsuits against him every week is a new product release.
I am a bit confused. As @bharatpeindia shareholder am I invested in a FinTech or Law Firm ? Also a new case against Ashneer Grover every week is a feature or product release ?!!— Ashneer Grover (@Ashneer_Grover) March 22, 2023
He also seemed to portray a nonchalant outlook toward the number of lawsuits piling up against him.
