Preparations for a board meeting of Prius Real Estate ended in fisticuffs between brothers Malvinder and Shivinder Singh, the former promoters and owners of Ranbaxy Laboratories, Fortis Healthcare and Religare, at their Hanuman Road office in central Delhi on Thursday evening.
Neither of the brothers is a member of the board though. In a video sent to friends and relatives, Malvinder has alleged that younger brother Shivinder assaulted him at their office: “Today is December 5th, 2018. Little after 6:00 pm, Shivinder Mohan Singh assaulted me at 55, Hanuman Road.
He physically hit me. He hurt me. He injured me (here). He broke this button. He gave me a bruise here. He bruised me here. And he kept threatening me and refused to budge until the team came together and separated him from me”, says Malvinder in the video. Shivinder has denied the allegation, calling it ‘fake’ and a ‘lie’.
Sources, however, confirmed the incident did take place with several employees of RHC Holding as witnesses. The fight between the brothers has been brewing ever since the brothers lost Rs 22,500 crore in less than a decade, besides losing control over family firms Fortis Healthcare and Religare Enterprises.
