The report quoted people who were aware of the matter as saying that Jain had used the funds for personal purchasing. However, the final copy of the investigation is yet to be presented to the board. Jain, according to sources, has been notified of the termination on February 23.

On February 10, Jain wrote to the board of Directors at BharatPe that she never presented her resignation. This came after, according to reports, her resignation was accepted by the board. In the letter, she wrote that she was being used as a ‘pawn’ amidst the fight between shareholders of the company. She also said that it defied the norms of corporate governance.

Ashneer Grover and his wife Madhuri Jain have been on a leave since January 19 and 20 respectively. Grover too offered to resign from the board in January. He also asked the company to pay him Rs 4,000 crore for the resignation. However, he took back the resignation almost immediately. According to ET, he said that decision on his resignation must be taken after he returns from his leave in April 2022.

The report also added that Jain’s brother Shwetank Jain and brother-in-law Deepak Jagdishram Gupta might also be involved in the financial irregularities. However, the official word from the BharatPe board is yet to come out.
