Kapil Sibal’s Wife Promilaa Is The BIGGEST Exporter of BEEF In India ! Thus the Tweet on Tunda kebab by Kapil Sibal


Our Analysis – As per research by our team, the image that is being circulated is photoshopped. Neither Kapil nor his wife Promilaa is present in the image. It is picture of French female butcher Stephanie Gerbie. You can read the article published in Washington post - http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/06/05/AR2007060502370.html

As per the news about slaughter house, it is correct that Promilaa used to run this slaughter house. As per livemint, she used to run this even before her marriage with Kapil Sibal - http://www.livemint.com/Specials/78oG6GkaGirhxwWgBn4VvL/The-business-interests-of-Kapil-Sibal.html

Earlier, the name of the slaughter house was Arihant Exports, but after the Jain community protested against the name, it was changed to Arshiya Exports Pvt.


If you look at the corporate directory of Arshiya Exports then you can get below information –

Arshiya Exports Private Limited was registered at Registrar of Companies Delhi on 31 March, 1981 and is categorised as Company Limited by Shares and an Indian Non-Government Company.
Arshiya Exports Private Limited's Corporate Identification Number (CIN) is U74899DL1981PTC011525 and Registeration Number is 011525.

Arshiya Exports Private Limited registered address on file is C--749new Friends Colony New Delhi Delhi India 110065, New Delhi - 110065, Delhi, India.

Arshiya Exports Private Limited currently have 3 Active Directors / Partners: Promilaa Sibal, Priya Marwah, Gitanjali Marwaha, and there are no other Active Directors / Partners in the company except these 3 officials.

Arshiya Exports Private Limited is involved in Business Services Activity and currently company is in Active Status.

It looks like the slaughter house is involved in officially slaughtering of large number of cows on a daily basis. Still, we are not sure if it the largest in India. As per the news from Indian Express - http://indianexpress.com/article/india/india-others/at-asias-largest-abattoir-butchers-fear-livelihood-loss-as-beef-ban-sets-in/

Deonar abattoir in Mumbai’s central suburbs is one of Asia’s largest slaughterhouses.

Even Subramanian Swamy‏ had updated his post in Twitter regarding this –


Conclusion – The image used to represent Promilaa is fake but the news is correct that Sibal’s are running one the largest slaughter houses in India.
