Nutan along with her husband IPS officer Amitabh Thakur and another person had sent a complaint on 06 November 2012 to SEBI, Registrar of Companies, Mumbai and others to enquire into alleged collection of money through Sahara Q shop scheme against the provisions of law.
Director, Sahara Q shop replied through his letter dated 21 December 2012 to ROC, Mumbai where he denied the charges and also alleged the complainants acting with vested reasons to get Companies operations de-established and being White-collar extortionist.
