The Vashi Police on Friday arrested the Deputy General Manager (DGM) of the nationalised Punjab National Bank (PNB) for his alleged involvement in a multi-crore fraud. Two more were arrested on Saturday late night.
Around 18 more people are yet to be arrested, the police said. The accused, identified as PNB DGM R. Goel and Kapil Rajput of Dwarka Group, were allegedly involved in the said multi-crore fraud. It is alleged that the DGM was in touch with different brokers, who would approach him with fake documents. One Suhabrata Dotta (46), approached the Vashi police and filed a complaint against Goel alleging a fraud of nearly Rs 23 crore. Dotta, a resident of Vashi, was one of the customers of the bank and like others faced losses. Though Dotta had complained several times against Goel, his complaints weren’t considered.
“The DGM approved these documents which cited fake loans further details would be conversed later,” said a senior police officer. Goel was produced in the holiday court in Vashi on Saturday which sent him in police custody till February 17.
However, a case has been registered against all the arrested accused under IPC sections 420,406,506 & 34
