Binny’s exit: Fallout on Ecomm sector 19.11.2018 Financial Chronicle
Chennai Binny Bansal’s unceremonious exit as Group CEO of Flipkart has been a fallout from multiple probes that are going on within the company on several allegations and issues. Apart from the complaint of “personal misconduct,” there are other matters which are being investigated by different law firms. If that be the case, more skeletons would fall off the cupboard in the coming days and Bansal facing a legal case and relinquishing from the current post of director cannot be ruled out. According to a source close to the company, the quick action was a result of multiple issues, which lacked “lapses of judgment” and “lack of transparency”.

Spy’s eye: A crucible of militancy 17.11.2018 Financial Chronicle

The victory of anti- Soviet armed campaign in Afghanistan that was run on the slogan of Jehad led to a further ...
