Lilavati Founder’s Son Hits Back At Trustees for Misrepresenting Judicial Orders

Mumbai – 25th April 2024 – In a recent development of the legal quagmire at Lilavati Hospital & Research Centre, Mr. Niket Mehta, the son of the Lilavati Hospital’s founder, Vijay Mehta has strongly condemned the conduct of Kishore and Charu Mehta, the two trustees of Lilavati Kirtilal Mehta Medical Trust for misinterpreting the Apex Court Orders.

Says Mr. Niket Mehta, son of Vijay Mehta, Founder, Lilavati Hospital, “Current Trustees Kishore and Charu Mehta have been misrepresenting the orders of Assistant Charity Commissioner and Honourable Supreme Court. They are making a blatant attempt to mislead the media and generate some eyeballs to deflect the attention of various authorities by disseminating a press release after 4-5 months of an old order.”

As a matter of fact, the change reports of Kishore & Charu’s three sons Rajesh, Prashant, and Rajeev were also rejected by the Assistant Charity Commissioner on 14.12.2023, and still they are claiming them to be Trustees validated by Supreme Court.

Rajesh Mehta is an NRI and is currently living in London . There was also an Interpol Notice against Rajesh Mehta for financial crimes. He was also jailed for seven months in Antwerp. Currently, Kishore & Charu Mehta and their three sons viz. Rajesh, Prashant, and Rajeev are facing legal proceedings for recovery of willful default by HDFC Bank. Similar cases in DRT are also being pursued by many other banks in India against Kishore & Charu Mehta family.

Moreover, Kishore & Charu have appointed nine trustees unlawfully as two trustees cannot make the coram and vote for any other as per the Trust Deed. Trust Deed clearly says you need three validly elected trustees which are not present in the current scenario.

In this light, a press release dated 24th April 2024, being circulated in the media on the appointment of newly elected board by Kishore Charu, is a misrepresentation of facts and thereby misleading general public, judiciary, and other authorities.
