A Begusarai court in Bihar issued an arrest warrant for Flipkart CEO Kalyan Krishnamurthy on charges of contempt of court.
The court issued the order after Krishnamurthy allegedly failed to appear in person after a summons was issued to him by the Begusarai court in connection with a case filed by a disgruntled Flipkart customer accusing the ecommerce company of fraud and forgery. The case began with Rajesh Kumar, a Begusarai resident, ordering a smartphone worth INR 17,000 from Flipkart. He claimed to have completed the payment online as well. He did not, however, receive his smartphone. Kumar went on to say that he had contacted Flipkart support, who had been unable to resolve his issue.
