PNB fraud case: Vipul Ambani, 5 others sent to CBI custody till 5 March

A special court in Mumbai has sent Vipul Ambani a senior executive in Nirav Modi's company and five others to CBI custody till March 5th in Punjab National Bank fraud case.

The six were arrested yesterday in connection with two FIRs registered by the CBI involving Nirav Modi and his uncle Mehul Choksi, the owner of Gitanjali Gems.

Vipul Ambani is the chief financial officer of Nirav Modi's Firestar International.

Meanwhile, the Central Bureau of Investigation, CBI has questioned the owner of Rotomac pens, Vikram Kothari, and his son Rahul at the agency's headquarters in New Delhi yesterday in connection with an alleged loan default of nearly 3700 crore rupees to a consortium of seven nationalised banks.

Mr Kothari was earlier questioned in Kanpur, where his company and residence were located. Kothari, his wife Sadhana and son Rahul, all directors of Rotomac Global Pvt Ltd, had allegedly diverted the loan amount towards purposes other than what they were meant for.

One of the banks in the consortium, the Bank of Baroda, had approached the CBI, requesting an FIR to be lodged against Kothari as it apparently feared that he might leave the country.

The CBI had registered a case on 18th of February following the complaint.
