Allahabad high court has asked the Uttar Pradesh government to submit the status report on the FIR filed against Ringing Bell for its alleged fraudulent activities. It has also asked the government not to take any coercive steps against the accused till then. The ET Bureau has reported the matter in detail as follows:-
The Allahabad High Court has directed the Uttar Pradesh government to file a status report by April 5 on the first information report (FIR) filed against the three founders of Ringing Bells, which offered to sell the world’s cheapest smartphone, at Rs 251. The court on Wednesday also asked the government not to take any coercive steps against the accused till then.
The FIR was filed on a complaint by BJP MP Kirit Somaiya against Mohit Goel, Dharna Garg and Ashok Chadha, the founder for alleged misleading advertisements and collecting money under a ponzi scheme.
A bench of justices BK Narayan and Shashi Kant was hearing a criminal writ petition filed by the Ringing Bells founders for quashing the FIR. The bench also directed Goel, Garg and Chadha to submit their passports to the senior superintendent of Noida police within 24 hours.
“We have nothing to hide. We are committed to affordable smart phones to people of this country and we shall achieve that. We will stick to fair practices and comply with regulations in our great country ,” Goel said in a statement.
