NEW DELHI: Software-as-a-service (SaaS) major Zoho Corporation's founder and chief executive officer (CEO) Sridhar Vembu on Tuesday took to Twitter to respond to his wife's allegations of him abandoning her and their autistic son, saying that it is "complete fiction".

"It is complete fiction to say I financially abandoned Pramila and my son. They enjoy a far richer life than I do and I have supported them fully. My US salary for the last 3 years has been with her, and I gave our house to her. Her foundation also is supported by Zoho," he tweeted.

 Vembu further said that he and his wife Pramila were in this fight against autism for over 15 years.

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a serious developmental disorder that impairs the ability to communicate and interact.

Their son has been suffering from Autism.

"She is a super mom and her passionate cause is curing our son of autism. I worked hard along with her. To ensure his safety I also took some of his treatments so I could know what they did to him," he said.

He said that their marriage broke down under that stress as their son was not recovering even after endless treatments.

Moreover, in his Twitter thread, he mentioned that his wife is making unfounded allegations in court about his ownership interest in Zoho Corp.

Zoho CEO said that he never transferred his shares in the company to anyone else.

"I never ever transferred my shares in the company to anyone else. I lived in the US for the first 24 years of our 27 year history and much of what constitutes the company was built in India. That is reflected in the ownership".

Meanwhile, Zoho has announced that it registered 10 times growth in five years since the start of its operations in the UAE, which serves as its Middle East and Africa headquarters.

On the sidelines of Zoholics Dubai, the annual user conference of the company, Zoho's CEO and Co-founder, Sridhar Vembu, also announced an investment of AED 100 million for expansion in the country.
