BharatPe Co-founder Ashneer Grover Apologizes for Defamatory Social Media Posts, Fined ₹2 Lakh by Delhi High Court

NEW DELHI, India – November 28, 2023: BharatPe co-founder Ashneer Grover has tendered an apology before the Delhi High Court for his defamatory social media posts targeting his former employer. However, despite his previous assurances to refrain from such conduct, he was fined ₹2 lakh by the court for violating its order.

In January 2023, the Delhi High Court had advised BharatPe and Grover to maintain civility towards each other despite their ongoing legal disputes. The court urged Grover to refrain from making allegedly defamatory statements and asked the counsel for both parties to convey this message to their respective clients.

“Social media has actually brought us down to this level. What are we doing here? Basically, they should be courteous to each other… You have fallen out, fight your litigation,” the court remarked.

Despite the court’s previous admonition, Grover continued to make defamatory statements about BharatPe on social media. This prompted BharatPe to file an application in its pending suit, highlighting Grover’s repeated violations of the court’s order.

In response, Grover’s advocate informed the court that he would tender an apology and provide an undertaking to refrain from making any further defamatory statements against BharatPe.

The court accepted Grover’s apology but imposed a fine of ₹2 lakh for his disregard for its previous order. Grover has been directed to remove his defamatory tweets.

This incident serves as a reminder of the importance of adhering to court orders and maintaining respectful conduct, even in the midst of legal disputes. Grover’s actions not only tarnished his own reputation but also caused further strain in his ongoing legal battles with BharatPe.
