New Delhi: The CBI has arrested four directors of Surya Vinayak Industries Limited for allegedly cheating a consortium of banks to the tune of Rs2,240 crore.

Sanjay Jain, Rajiv Jain, Rohit Chaudhary and Sanjeev Agarwal have been arrested on the complaint of Punjab National Bank (PNB), the CBI sources said.

It is alleged that the four accused used more than 100 shell companies for routing and diversion of bank funds, they said. The firm and the shell companies had no genuine business transactions, the CBI sources said.

The PNB alleged that the company had diverted bank funds to the tune of Rs2,240 crore, which resulted in loss to the consortium. Over Rs300 crore of working capital was also allegedly moved to six companies set abroad, they said.

The accused will be produced before the Patiala House Court today. PTI ABS RCJ
