India – More bad news for India’s e-cinema operator UFO Moviez, which does not need this kind of publicity just prior to a proposed IPO.
The EOW will summon Sanjay Gaikwad, founder and managing director of UFO Moviez, and his partner Narendra Hete, in a case of criminal breach of trust.
Advocate Anjali Jagtap lodged an FIR that she was not paid her fees for a land deal. “When IT officials raided the digital cinema firm’s premises in 2013, it transpired that they had paid the amount. But the complainant stated that she had not got her fees (around Rs 3.5 crore) for the over 1,100-acre deal in Panvel,” said an EOW officer. “We have registered the FIR and are probing the case,” said Rajvardhan Sinha, additional commissioner of police, EOW.
