Police in Rajasthan’s Kota have registered a case against Snapdeal’s founders Kunal Bahl and Rohit Bansal. This happened after a local leader belonging to a national political party alleged that the online shopping site sent him fake products.
The founders have been booked for cheating under section 420 of the Indian Penal Code after businessman Indermohan Singh Honey complained that instead of a Woodland belt and a wallet, he was delivered fakes. According to the police, he placed the order on July 17, and paid online for it.
In a complaint lodged at the city’s Gumanpura police station, Singh said he doubted the genuineness of the products delivered, and took them to a Woodland showroom. After being examined by the staff, it was ascertained that the products were “duplicate and fake,” say the police.
Singh also alleged that some months back the online shopping site did not deliver the wrist watch he ordered, despite receiving a message claiming that it had reached his home. Only when he complained, he got a refund.
