On Thursday, Diamond Power Infrastructure Ltd (DPIL) was raided by the CBI after a case registered of cheating and criminal conspiracy against its owners, Suresh Bhatnagar and his sons Amit Bhatnagar and Sumit Bhatnagar, for allegedly cheating a consortium of 11 banks of Rs 2,654 crore.
Interestingly, the company got loans despite the fact that it was on RBI’s defaulters’ list and the Export Credit Guarantee Corporation (ECGC) caution list, which officials say couldn’t have been possible without the involvement of bank officials. The unknown bank officials have been named by the CBI in its FIR.
The CBI teams on Thursday raided several places in Vadodara including the firm’s office in Gorwa area and residence of managing director Amit Bhatnagar. Sumit is the joint managing director.
The CBI Confirmed “DPIL, engaged in manufacturing electric cables and other electrical equipment, fraudulently availed credit facilities from a consortium of 11 banks (both public and private) since 2008, leaving behind an outstanding debt of Rs 2,654.40 crore as on June 29, 2016,”
