CBI bribery raids on Yes Bank family
The CBI on Monday searched seven locations in Mumbai in connection with an alleged Rs 600-crore bribe paid to the family of Yes Bank co-founder Rana Kapoor by Dewan Housing and Finance Ltd (DHFL), agency sources said.
Kapoor, 62, had been arrested by the Enforcement Directorate on Sunday on money-laundering charges.
In the bribery case, the agency has accused five companies and seven individuals. Apart from Kapoor, they include his wife Bindu Kapoor and daughters Roshini Kapoor, Raakhe Kapoor Tandon and Radha Kapoor Khanna.
Also accused are DHFL chairman and managing director Kapil Wadhawan and Dheeraj Rajesh Kumar Wadhawan, director of RKW Developers Pvt Ltd, a company linked to DHFL.
According to the CBI, Kapoor had entered into a criminal conspiracy with Kapil Wadhawan for the round-tripping of funds, where a part of the loans from Yes Bank to DHFL landed up with a company owned by Kapoor’s daughters, DoIT Urban ventures Pvt Ltd. Bindu is a director in the firm.
“During the year 2018-2019, Rana Kapoor… entered into a criminal conspiracy with Kapil Wadhawan… and others for extending financial assistance to DHFL by Yes Bank in lieu of substantial undue benefit to himself and his family members,” the FIR says.
