CBI Takes DHFL Promoters In Custody In Connection With Yes Bank Scam


The Central Bureau of Investigation has taken DHFL promoter Kapil Wadhawan and RKW Developers promoter Dheeraj Wadhawan into custody from a Mahabaleshwar-based quarantine facility, in connection with a bribery case against former Yes Bank Chief Executive Officer Rana Kapoor, officials said on Sunday.

A process of executing non-bailable warrants against both is going on, a CBI official said.

The Wadhawan brothers are named as accused in the CBI FIR pertaining to swindling of money by Kapoor and others, the officials said. The two were absconding since the case was registered against them on March 7, the agency had alleged.

They were held by Satara Police earlier this month while allegedly violating prohibitory orders related to lockdown when a carcade carrying Wadhawan family members was stopped at Panchgani in Maharashtra. They were kept at a quarantine facility in Mahabaleshwar by the district administration, they said.

The CBI had written to the Satara district administration to not release them without a No Objection Certificate from it, the officials added.
