Earlier, an independent legal firm appointed by the board of directors to probe certain financial wrongdoings by some employees of the company submitted a report to the board, pointing out certain misrepresentation in financial statements of the company and unauthorized financial transactions.
The irregularities were “purportedly carried out by identified company personnel (both current and past) including certain non-executive directors, certain KMPs and others identified employees” in breach of rules and without proper authorization, noted the report.
