New Delhi:Real estate firm Omaxe Group’s second-largest promoter, Sunil Goel, on Thursday said that the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) Delhi has issued a contempt of court notice to Rohtas Goel and other directors of Buildwell Builders Pvt Ltd in a malpractices and financial mismanagment case.

The Court has also directed that the financial statements, bank details, any important resolutions by the Omaxe board, minute books and attendance register effective from April 1, 2015 onwards be placed on record and kept in court custody.

Rohtas is the largest promoter and shareholder of the company, while Sunil is the second largest promoter with 20 per cent shareholding in it.

As per an earlier statement from Sunil, he was ousted from the company in 2017 when he acted as a whistle-blower raising objections about a financial fraud.

Sunil has also sought reinstatement as director of the company and ‘status quo’ on assets.
