"Shri Narain Sai is one of the Trustees of the said Trust," the statement said.
"As per our knowledge, initially in the SFIO report there were certain allegations on the former directors of M/s Jayant Vitamins Ltd. On not following the rules and regulations of the company law and other related issues," it said.
