According to the Central Bureau of Investigation charge sheet against 22 accused in the case, fugitive diamantaire Mehul Choksi’s managers rented apartments in Mumbai in the identities of several of their staff members to conceal the authentic files pertaining to the Punjab National Bank (PNB) fraud.
On Tuesday, a special court took cognizance of the charge sheet and issued a new non-bailable order against Choksi. According to the new charge sheet, the papers were moved from rented locations on the orders of Vipul Chitalia, the then-vice-president of Choksi’s Gitanjali Group.
According to the CBI, Chitalia kept documents of bogus LOUs and FLCs on Google Drive at Choksi’s request. When Chitalia was in its possession, the drive was retrieved.
