As investigations into the Rs 11,400 crore scam at PNB gather momentum, officials at overseas branches of other banks, where the fraudulently issued Letter of Undertakings (LoUs) were encashed, are under scanner, sources said.
The Defence Minister while holding a number of documents, said that the Congress President Rahul Gandhi had benefited from the scam in which billionaire jewelerNirav Modi and his partner Mehul Choksi are the prime suspects. In a freakish coincidence, the name of the villain is Nirav Choksi - an amalgamation of the two main accused in the present CBI case: Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi.
"The fraud in PNB is a case of operational risk arising on account of delinquent behaviour by one or more employees of the bank and failure of internal controls", the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) said in a release on February 16.
While the CBI is scrutinising the details of LoUs and Letters of Credit submitted by the Punjab National Bank in the past few days, PNB's head office too has scrutinised its LoUs and submitted a report to the CBI. The ED has separately strengthened its searches at 35 premises and have got assets worth another Rs 500 crore, taking the stated value of confiscations to over Rs 5,600 crore until now. Prasad had also made a desperate plea to the PMO to stop the loot before Nirav Modi's uncle, Mehul Choksi fled the country just like Vijay Mallya and Lalit Modi did in the past.
