The Story Of Sonia Dhawan Becoming VP Of Paytm From Secretary Is Nothing Short Of A Bollywood Thriller

Published on 27 October, 2018 at 11:49 am By

The story of the recent Paytm extortion case is slowly emerging like an exciting Bollywood thriller complete with  high ambitions, a sprawling bungalow and blackmailers.  The central character in this thriller is Sonia Dhawan, a long-time personal secretary to Paytm founder Vijay Shekhar Sharma. She was among three people arrested in Noida on October 22 for allegedly trying to extort Rs 20 crore. Dhawan had been working with the company since its inception in 2010. From climbing the corporate ladder to getting arrested in the extortion case is an intriguing story in itself.

As per a regulatory filing by One97 Communications Ltd — the parent company of Paytm — she held 1,400 shares in the company as of November 2017. Sonia’s yearly income was a whopping Rs 85 lakh.  Dhawan has said that she is innocent and it was a conspiracy by Vijay, while the investigation reveals that she allegedly conspired to blackmail the company’s founder around two months ago, after her request for Rs 4 crore to buy a home was ignored.

At the time of arrest Sonia Dhawan was Vice President, Corporations/PR. She started her career in the company as Vijay’s secretary. The journey has been really impressive because since she joined in 2010 and has achieved a lot!

But it is a big question who helped her in achieving this coveted position and then made her allegedly threaten the founder of leaking his personal secrets.



 

 

 

Vijay Shekhar Sharma, the founder of India’s largest e-wallet firm, has also spilled the beans and said that he believes that his former secretary Sonia Dhawan was used as a conduit of someone else’s bigger plan.

 

 

 

 

There is definitely more to the case and the family of Sonia Dhawan has naturally swiped off all the allegations but the question remains the same that who made her this powerful?
