Actress opens up about the her company’s gold scam, read the full story below.

Actor Sachiin Joshi had filed a complaint against fitness diva Shilpa Shetty and her husband Raj Kundra claiming that he had been cheated by Satyug Gold Pvt. Ltd a gold trading company formerly owned by the couple. Sachiin Joshi had supposedly purchased a kilo of gold from the same company. Breaking her silence on the issue, Shilpa Shetty in a statement said, “All these allegations made by Sachiin Joshi are completely false and baseless. At Satyug Gold, each and every client’s orders have been fulfilled in time. We have even deposited 1kg gold for which Sachiin Joshi is yet to pay the demurrage charges legally applicable. Not many know, we also have a cheque bouncing case in court against this serial defaulter. If we didn’t wish to give him the gold, we would not have it deposited it in court. The court has now appointed an arbitrator where we have presented the charges that are due and clearly mentioned on the invoice and website. The truth will be out real soon,” as put by Bombay Times.

The legal statement issued by the actress and her husband also states about the issue in a clear manner. The invoice states there will be storage charges applicable in the scenario the gold is not collected on the due date. Further the TnC on official website guides to the amount of storage charges applicable. In the tenure of 1 year from the due date, Mr. Joshi never once tried to contact the company for the collection, for which he feels defrauded by claims of security charges and penalty, the statement reveals. Bombay High Court on 11th September had granted a stay on the order by which Mr. Joshi was allowed to take the gold deposited with the court, as reported by Bombay Times.
