Unmesh Joshi is the founder of Kohinoor CTNL. In 2005, Raj Thackeray’s Matoshree Construction and Unmesh Joshi had jointly invested Rs 421 crores to buy the NTPC owned Kohinoor Mill.

The Kohinoor Mills was a 4.8-acre property. Raj Thackeray had eventually exited from the joint venture.

IL&FS had reportedly given a loan to Kohinoor CTNL worth Rs 225 crores but later on, took a hit of Rs 135 crores. As per reports IL&FS’s total investments in Kohinoor CTNL stand at Rs 860 crores.

The summons to Thackeray and Unmesh Joshi by the ED is bound to trigger a political blame game in Maharashtra.
