The CBI on Thursday filed a chargesheet against two employees of Bank of Baroda before a special court in connection with the alleged illegal remittances case worth Rs 6,000 crore made to over 350 accounts in Hong Kong and Dubai from one of its branches here.
The CBI filed the charge sheet before the special judge PK Jain — where the agency named two former officials of Bank of Baroda, Bijendra Singh and Meenesh Dubey. The accused persons have been charged with criminal conspiracy under sections of the IPC and various sections of the Prevention of Corruption Act.
The CBI, however, has not named other bank officials and the 59 account holders and other private persons, alleged by it to be part of the illegal remittances. It has now submitted to the special court that investigation is pending against other bank officials, 59 account holders and other private persons.
“Though in the chargesheet, it is nowhere mentioned that further investigation qua these two accused is also pending, yet counsel submits that as per the information received from the investigating office qua these two accused persons, further investigation is also pending and same will be completed at the earliest,” Special Judge PK Jain said. The court has now sought clarification from the agency in this matter.
The CBI had registered a case under Section 120-B (criminal conspiracy) read with 420 (cheating) of IPC and Section 13(2) r/w 13(1)(d) of Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988, against 59 current account holders and unknown bank officials and private persons on a complaint from Bank of Baroda.
