New Delhi: The chairman of Hyderabad-based English daily Deccan Chronicle T. Venkatram Reddy was on Saturday arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in connection with alleged default of 357 crore loan from Canara Bank.

CBI sources said the arrest was in connection with a case registered by it against the company Deccan Chronicle Holdings Ltd in July 2013 on the basis of a complaint from Canara Bank, Bangalore.

The agency had registered a case of alleged cheating and criminal conspiracy against Venkatram Reddy in 2013. The bank had refused to restructure the loan taken by the company that had remained unpaid.

Reddy was taken into custody by a CBI team from Bangalore after a brief questioning, sources said. Vice chairman and managing director of the company T. Vinayak Ravi Reddy has also been arrested, CBI sources said.
