CBI plans second chargesheet against Vijay Mallya in a month
CBI’ new chargesheet in the Vijay Mallya is likely to mention several senior bank officials who had dealt with loans to Kingfisher Airlines
New Delhi: Close on the heels of liquor baron Vijay Mallya’s extradition hearing in London last week, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is likely to file another chargesheet on the matter, within a month.
Many senior officials of banks who had dealt with loans given to Mallya’s now grounded Kingfisher Airlines may be named as accused in the new chargesheet by CBI, said people with knowledge of the matter.
This would be the first chargesheet in the case pertaining to loans of more than ₹ 6,000 crore given to Kingfisher Airlines by a consortium of 17 banks led by State Bank of India (SBI) which alone had an exposure of ₹ 1,600 crore.
The agency has already filed a charge sheet against Mallya last year in connection with a separate case related to a ₹ 900 crore loan by IDBI Bank Ltd, in which senior officials of the state-run bank were allegedly involved. The CBI had registered two cases against Mallya related to the IDBI loans in 2015 and consortium loan in 2016.
