Ashneer, who is the co-founder at BharatPe earlier this year spoke about his family and childhood at the Times Litfest. As quoted by Times of India, he had said, "Malviya nagar is a refugee colony my grandparents had come from Pakistan and they got a 200 gaj plot after the division between the sons. We all started building our homes one above another and that is how we all have been living in a house with different kitchens but all together."
Ashneer had also said, "Back in the day, there was this concept of a colony. We knew everyone in the lane and it was a close-knit set-up. We had to earn for ourselves and grow as there was no backing. I have very fond memories of Malviya Nagar, I had almost changed 3-4 houses there and now just a few years back I got out of the vicinity."
Ashok was a Delhi-based chartered accountant. The cause of his death is not known. He is survived by his son Ashneer and daughter Aashima.
