(Reuters) - Currency service provider Travelex said on Wednesday the UAE-based Indian billionaire B.R. Shetty and two other directors have resigned from its board, days after its owner Finablr <FINF.L> flagged going concern doubts.

The two other directors of the company, which has been the subject of a crippling ransomware attack earlier this year, who quit are Binay Shetty and Abdulrahman Basaddiq.

B.R. Shetty founded Finablr and hospital operator NMC Health <NMC.L>, which kicked him off its board in February after coming under fire for its financial statements and some of the shareholdings of its major investors.
