    NEW DELHI: Infosys Chairman Nandan Nilekani on Wednesday said the recent speculations suggesting the involvement of the company’s co-founders in the whistleblower complaints are appalling and seem to be aimed at tarnishing the image of some of “the most accomplished and respected individuals.”

    “Infosys strongly condemns the mischievous insinuations made by anonymous sources against the co-founders and former colleagues, suggesting their involvement in the recent whistleblower allegations,” the statement read.

    In a filing to BSE, Nilekani said he has deep regard for the life-long contribution of all the IT firm’s co-founders. “They have built this institution and have served this company selflessly and even today remain committed to the long-term success of Infosys,” he said.

    Shares of the company traded 2.55 per cent higher at Rs 713.50 on BSE following the development.

    Nilekani said the audit committee has appointed an external law firm to conduct an independent investigation into the allegations. “We will share the outcome of the investigation at the relevant time with all stakeholders,” he said.
