The firm owner, Gagandeep, said: “The firm had not committed any fraud, in fact all complainants were being incited by some miscreants to file fake complaints against the company to defame it.”“We kept the office shut for three days because some miscreants had misbehaved with our female staff and we have now lodged a complaint regarding the same. From tomorrow, our office will be opened and any person having any doubts about his or her file status, can come and enquire about the same. If anyone wants to withdraw his/her case, the firm will also accede to that” he said.
