'Receiving constant online threats; will fight against witchhunt': Indian-origin CEO Ankiti Bose sacked by Zilingo

Ankiti Bose, who was fired as the CEO of fashion tech company Zilingo on allegations of serious financial irregularities on Friday, said she and her family were receiving constant online threats.

In 2015, Ankiti Bose, who is of Indian origin, founded Zilingo, an online company that offers technology to apparel merchants and factories, with chief technology officer Dhruv Kapoor.

The 30-year-old alleged that she was fired as Zilingo CEO due to insubordination.

"I have been suspended for the last 51 days based on an anonymous whistle-blower complaint, and today I am informed that my employment has been terminated inter alia on grounds of "insubordination"," Ankiti Bose said in an Instagram post. 

She claimed that the Singapore-based company neither showed the report, based on which she was sacked, nor did it allow her time to produce the requested documents.

Bose said she and her family have been receiving constant online threats but vowed to fight against the witchhunt.

On March 31, Ankiti Bose was put on suspension following complaints of alleged irregularities in company accounts.

"Following an investigation led by an independent forensics firm that was commissioned to look into complaints of serious financial irregularities, the company has decided to terminate Ankiti Bose's employment with cause, and reserves the right to pursue appropriate legal action," Zilingo said in a statement.

The company, however, did not reveal the allegations against Bose or the findings of the audit.
