Gurugram Court has summoned the Chinese Billionaire and his company Alibaba and UC Browser
A Gurugram Court has summoned Chinese Billionaire Jack Ma, Ali Baba and UC Web Mobile Private Limited in a wrongful termnation suit. (Pushpandra Singh Parmar vs UC Web Mobile Private Limited and others)
Pushpandra Singh Parmar was the Associate Director at UC Web Mobile, which owns UC Web Browser. He was the head of Content Censorship. He was allegedly terminated when he objected to some pro-China and anti-India content being promoted by UC Web Browser.
Pushpandra had also written to NIA and PMO complaining about the pro-China practices of UC Web.
Speaking to Bar & Bench, his lawyer Atul Ahlawat said, when the Chinese Apps were banned, they were asked 70 questions. 24 out of these 70 questions were the same ones my client had asked. Confirming that they have filed a suit for wrongful termination and damages of Rs. 2 Crores ($2,68,000), he said the suit will next be heard on July 29.
