Senior Bankers Arrested In India 'scam' Probe

Recommended Posts


Police in the Indian city of Mumbai say that they have arrested eight people, including senior executives of top state banks, over a suspected scam.

They say that the alleged fraud involved bribes paid to secure large corporate loans.

Senior figures from the Bank of India, the Central Bank of India and the Punjab National Bank were arrested.

The Bombay stock exchange recorded significant losses after the arrests were made public.

The arrests are the latest in a series of corruption scandals to hit the country, including alleged financial irregularities at the Commonwealth Games, an alleged scam involving homes for war widows in the state of Maharashtra and the resignation of a government minister in a row over the issue of multi-billion dollar mobile phone contracts.

At a news conference in Mumbai, police said that raids had taken place across the country and officials were arrested in Delhi and Mumbai.

There was no immediate response from any of the arrested officials or the institutions for which they work.

Among those arrested was the chairman of Mumbai-based financial services group, Money Matters, and two other executives from the firm, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) said.

Correspondents say that the company specialises in advising corporate clients on how to borrow money.

Is that because those arrested are talking to the police rather than preparing a press statement?

At least bankers somewhere have been arrested.
