Can i join competitor company.

02-Nov-2023 (In Breach of Contract Law)
I worked for company X for 5 years and left the company 2 months back, after serving notice period. My contract does not mention that i can't join competitor company. Now I joined the company competitor company , and my previous company X got known about it. My previous company X is not giving me a relieving letter, i do have a resignation copy, and manager had told me on whatsapp that my last date of company will be so n so. i do have that in record. My concern is, can they take any legal actions on me?

Hello Sir,
I need to see your employment agreement along with its terms and conditions.
Then I will able to give you opinion. Further if you served notice period then they don't have right to hold your reliving letter but I need to see above documents before giving any opinion.
Thank you.
