“I can no longer see the sufferings of investors. I am withdrawing from the case on ethical and moral grounds”, Vineet Dhanda said while talking to #KhabarLive.

He said Nowhera Shaikh had assured to release 200 crore rupees to investors but backtracked after other lawyers advised her not to do so.

“Nowhera Shaikh had promised to release 200 crore rupees to investors. Accordingly, we had also filed affidavits in the Supreme Court. But, on the advice of Advocate Irfan and Advocate Tamanna, Nowhera Shaikh refused to release the payment”, Dhanda said.

“SC judges are asking us to release the payments. I had made assurances in the court. But, after Nowhera Shaikh declined to abide by the assurances I had given to the court, it became difficult for me to continue as her lawyer”, Dhanda said.

Advocate Irfan and Advocate Tamanna could not be contacted for their response.

Vineet Dhanda also said that the whole family of Nowhera Shaikh has gone underground and there is no one to talk with.

“Where is Ismael Shaikh, Nowhera Shaikh’s brother? He used to be one of the signees on the cheques. Where are other members of her family? There is no one with whom we can discuss the case”, he said.
