The statement assured that this would not repeat again and said. “Sandeep has been wronged on multiple counts by people he trusted the most. He is deeply hurt and while he stands by each and every word, he regrets having made the emotional outburst and using public media to express it.” The statement went on to say, “He lost the love of his life, ShopClues, and hardly gets to see kids and that took a toll on his emotions…while he stands by each and every word, he regrets having the emotional outburst and using public media to express it.”
Meanwhile the online marketplace ShopClues denied any knowledge of the cases of defamation that Sandeep filed. A ShopClues spokesperson wrote in an email reply that read. “The company is not aware of any of those cases. Officially, we are aware of the two cases FBI and SEC (in the US) have against him – both of which he has pleaded guilty to and he is awaiting sentencing in both of those. Sandeep has been separated from the company since 2013 after his indictment.” ShopClues was founded way back in the year 2011 by Sanjay Sethi and the Aggarwals. However, he later was not actively involved with the popular online marketplace.
On the other hand, Radhika expressed shock and called the allegations by Sandeep “unfounded and baseless”, declining to comment further on the matter as it involves the privacy of her family. She stated that the online marketplace ShopClues was a team effort and wants to focus her time and energy on her investors, employees, and country.
