PNB scam: Mehul Choksi named ‘wanted’ in CBI chargesheet

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has filed second charge-sheet of 12,000 pages in Mumbai’s special CBI court where he is named as ‘wanted’.

Earlier in April, a non-bailable warrant was issued against Nirav Modi, also an accused in the PNB scam and Mehul Choksi. Prior to that, the Enforcement Directorate had issued summons to them and their passports were revoked.

The development comes a day after the PNB recorded a net loss of Rs. 13,417 crore in its Q4 earnings for the quarter ended 31st March 2018. As per reports, the second charge sheet in the PNB fraud case relates to loss of Rs. 7,000 caused to the bank due to alleged malpractices carried out by Choksi’s companies in connivance with few PNB staffers and officers.
