All payments were made through cheques drawn in the favour of Surendra’s firm ‘Corgifts.”
Parhad also revealed that Surendra had told him that his daughters and wife are aware of this loan as they are the part of his business. However, Surendra Shetty died unfortunately in October 2016 and Parhad came to Sunanda and her daughters to get back his loan, they denied the loan was ever taken and refused to make payments when he approached them. They called them a liar.
