JAMMU, FEB 21: Shiv Sena (Bala Sahib Thackeray) today expressed serious concern over fraud of Rs. 11000 crore in the PNB. While talking to media persons here today, State President of party Dimpy Kohli, General Secretary Manish Sahni, Ramesh Gupta and Rajan Gupta Vice President, Raj Singh and Vikas Patel Secretary said that the way fraud has been committed by Neerav Modi in PNB is a matter of big concern and Modi led central govt. is doing nothing in this case. He said that Finance Minister Arun Jaitley who is known to be a big spokesperson of Modi govt. has not spoken even a single word about this case. He said with the help of employees of PNB Neerav Modi defrauded in PNB shaking the bank from its roots. He said that in order to restore the confidence of stake holders Modi govt. must arrest Neerav Modi and put him behind bars whether he is in USA or any other country. He said that Modi govt. must deal strictly with these fraudsters.
Dimpy said that Bank of Baroda had classified the Rs. 435 crore loan given to Vikram Kothari-run Rotomac Global a “non-performing asset” in October 2015 and a “fraud” in December 2017 came to the investigating agencies on last Sunday after the Nirav Modi scandal came to light, fearing that Kothari too might leave the country.
He said that the public sector bank remained silent for two years despite facing a Rs. 6,172 crore forex scam in 2015 in which money was sent from India to Hong Kong for import of cashew nuts, pulses and rice, but nothing was imported and the money was deposited in 59 accounts of several firms. He said that the way fraudsters are looting money of Banks with the active cooperation of corrupt staff of Banks is a matter of great concern and the Govt. must take some concrete steps to make banking transactions transparent so that hard earned money of common man will be saved.
