BharatPe co-founder Ashneer Grover and his wife Madhuri Jain were stopped at the Delhi international airport following a look out circular issued against them in the alleged fraud at the fintech firm, sources said.
The couple were to travel to New York late on Thursday for vacation when they were stopped at the airport on the basis of a look out circular issued by the Economic Offences Wing (EoW) of the Delhi police. EoW is investigating complaints of payments being made at BharatPe to fake human resource consultancies allegedly operated by Grover and family. They have also been accused of backdating invoices to use funds.
Grover in a post on X confirmed being stopped at the airport. He however said he had not received any communication or summons from EoW since the FIR was filed in May. “At immigration they said LoC laga hua hai sir - EOW se check kar ke batate hai (At the immigration, they said LoC has been issued and they need to check with EoW),” he said. “I found it strange as have travelled 4 times internationally since FIR filed in May - never been a problem and I had not even been summoned once.”
The flight left in the meantime and EoW asked immigration to allow the duo to return home, he said.
