Managing partner Mudhit Gupta said the company paid Sussanne Rs 1.87 crore in 2013 for “architectural and designing services”, ANI reported. Sussanne however failed to deliver her designs within the stipulated time, and what she finally submitted was sub-standard, Gupta alleged.

Suspicious of her credentials, the company checked with the Council of Architecture and found that she wasn’t registered as an architect, Gupta further stated.
