Ankiti Bose, the co-founder of Singapore fashion startup Zilingo, was terminated following an independent forensic audit into complaints of serious financial irregularities. Bose has claimed that she was “wrongfully dismissed” by the firm and that she was not given a chance to fully address the concerns that have been raised.

The 30-year-old claimed she was sacked as CEO of Zilingo for insubordination. She said that the company did not show her the reports and did not even allow her enough time to prepare the documentation she sought.
