More troubles are brewing for former Yes Bank CEO and Managing Director Rana Kapoor as the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has filed a charge sheet against him and others in connection with a ₹465.51 crore bank fraud case.
A CBI spokesperson said that the agency filed a charge sheet against Kapoor, Avantha Group chairman Gautam Thapar and Oyster Buildwell Private Limited.
The CBI had registered a case against Oyster Buildwell Private Limited, located at Gurugram in Haryana, and others on June 2 last year on a complaint from Yes Bank Limited.
The FIR registered on June 2 last year did not name Kapoor as a suspect in the case. “However, his role surfaced during the investigation,” an official said.
In the complaint, it was alleged that the accused had committed criminal breach of trust, cheating, criminal conspiracy, and forgery for diversion/ misappropriation of public money, during the period from 2017 to 2019.
The CBI on June 5 last year carried out searches at several premises, including the official and residential premises of the accused, which led to the recovery of several documents and digital evidence etc.
