Indian eCommerce giant, Snapdeal, has yet again stepped itself into trouble. An FIR has been registered against Kunal Bhal (the CEO) & Rohit Bansal (founder) of the company for allegedly selling popular instant noodles Maggi online during the ban period in 5 states of India.
“A case was registered yesterday against CEO of Snapdeal Kunal Bahl and its founder Rohit Bansal for online sale of Nestle's instant noodles in five states including Rajasthan during the period of ban between June 7 and October 30 last year,” police said today.
The complaint was registered by a Jaipur-based lawyer Lalit Sharma following which police has implemented an FIR under section 420 for cheating, 120-B for criminal conspiracy, 272 for adulteration of food or drink intended for sale and 273 for sale of noxious food or drink of the IPC and sections 59 and 63 of the Food Safety and Standards Act 2006.
No response or statement has been given by any of company authorities on the same.
Last June, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India had put a ban on sale of Maggi after they found high levels of lead in it.
The Bombay High Court, however, had revoked the ban on Maggi on October 19 allowing it to be back on shelves.
