The differences between Singh brothers, former promoters of
healthcare major Fortis Healthcare Limited, reached a new level
after elder brother Malvinder Singh alleged that his younger
brother Shivinder Singh assaulted him, according to several
media reports. The incident happened at their Hanuman Road
office, New Delhi, on Thursday evening.
“Today is December 5, 2018. A little after 6 pm. Shivinder
Mohan Singh assaulted me, he physically hit me. He hurt me. He
injured me. He broke the button. He bruised me…kept threatening
me and refused to budge until the team here came together and
separated him from me,” said Malvinder Singh in a half a
minute video, while showing his bruises.
Shivinder Singh, however, refuted the allegation, calling it
‘fake’ and a ‘lie’.
