It looks like MS Dhoni is not having a good time, both, on and off the field. After being lambasted for his slow batting in World Cup, his name has been dragged in the Amrapali money laundering case.
But he is not far away from the news, once a brand ambassador of Amrapali has now been reported for the dubious agreement with the company.
As per the Outlook report, Supreme Court-appointed auditors have observed that Amrapali entered into money laundering with companies where MS Dhoni and his wife Sakshi Dhoni have significant stakes. MS Dhoni was a brand ambassador of Amrapali till April 2016.
The forensic audit that was reported to Supreme Court bench of Justices Arun Mishra and U U Lalit, says, “We feel that Home Buyers money has been diverted illegally and wrongly to Rhiti Sports Management Private Limited and should be recovered from them as the said Agreement in our opinion do not stand the test of Law.”
MS Dhoni has major stakes in Rhiti while Sakshi is a director of Amrapali Mahi Developers Private Limited.
The auditors added: “We are informed verbally that this company was incorporated for the development of a project in Ranchi. An MOU was also entered between the parties though we were not provided a copy of that.”
The auditors observe: “This sum has been paid on account of Agreements executed by Shri Anil Kumar Sharma, CMD for and on behalf of Amrapali Group of Companies with Rhiti Sports Management Private Limited. There is no resolution on record authorizing Mr. Anil Kumar Sharma, CMD to agree on behalf of all Amrapali group of Companies.”
Earlier, MS Dhoni already moved to court in 2018 against Amrapali over payment disputes.
