The Police booked Oracle India head and his wife in Hyderabad for cheating clients by recollecting huge advances for the Interior design projects using Oracle’s goodwill.
The Police said that they had booked Oracle India head Pradeep Agarwal and his wife, Meenu Agarwal, under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and served notices to them on Monday at their residence in Gurgaon.
Meenu Agarwal headed an interior company named MADS Creation Pvt Ltd. in Gurgaon. She used to dupe company clients in and around Delhi NCR by taking huge advance project money and executing inferior quality work. In some projects, she disappeared from the work site without completing the job, Police said.
Police further stated that Pradeep Agarwal was the mastermind behind the creation of MADS Creation Pvt Ltd., who was country head and senior director of Oracle India. They both together exploited the goodwill and reputation of Oracle India for trapping the customers.
Police said, “Meenu Agarwal allegedly threatened clients with the implication of sexual harassment and attempt to murder charges.”
Oracle India issued a statement that says, “Oracle has no involvement in the matter.” Oracle even claimed that Pradeep Agarwal is not the Oracle India Head. However, some other media reports said that Agarwal is the company’s head and has been with Oracle for four years.
The investigating officer of the cheating case said, “We are approaching Oracle for Pradeep Agarwal’s designation, and the company had not made it cleared yet. As per LinkedIn and other websites, Pradeep Agarwal is senior director for Oracle India.”
