NEW DELHI: The feud between brothers Malvinder and Shivinder Mohan Singh has taken an ugly turn with Malvinder, former chairman and managing director of Fortis Healthcare, alleging that his younger brother assaulted him on Wednesday while Shivinder has denied the allegation and said that, in fact, it was Malvinder who hit him.
Malvinder posted a picture on a WhatsApp group that seemed to show him injured. He also posted a video, saying, “Today, December 5, 2018, a little after 6pm, Shivinder Mohan Singh assaulted me at 55 Hanuman Road. He physically hit me… injured me, broke a button, gave me a bruise, and kept threatening me and refused to budge until the team here separated him from me.”
Claiming that his younger brother, Shivinder Mohan Singh assaulted him on Wednesday, Malvinder told TOI the whole episode started as Shivinder was trying to disrupt the board meeting of a group company, Prius Real Estate, which he claimed has lent around Rs 2,000 crore to companies owned by Gurinder Singh Dhillon and his family.
Malvinder said the board meeting was held to decide to recover the money from the Dhillon group. However, he claimed that Shivinder went to the Hanuman Road office and tried to disrupt the board meeting in order to derail the recovery process, though he is not a board member. Malvinder said when he came to know of the episode, he rushed to the venue. As soon as he reached there, Shivinder assaulted him, he claimed.
Shivinder, on his part, denied Malvinder’s claims as “false and fabricated” and said it was Malvinder who hit him. He added that he went to the police station to file a complaint but later withdrew it at the request of senior family members, including his mother and uncle.
Malvinder said he had to go to Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital for treatment of his injuries. He said the hospital said he had suffered internal injuries in the knee and hand and advised a cast. However, he did not file a complaint on the request of his mother and uncle. In September, Shivinder had withdrawn a petition against Malvinder in the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) but had made it clear that he was keeping the option to go back to litigation if the outstanding issues between the two, including payment to Daiichi, was not resolved.
Shivinder had moved the NCLT against Malvinder and former CEO of RHC Holding Sunil Godhwani alleging that they were involved in activities that were detrimental to the company’s interest. He later decided to withdraw the petition after his mother and other family members offered to mediate and help resolve outstanding issues between the two brothers.
