The Enforcement Directorate on Monday filed a chargesheet against Housing Development Infrastructure Ltd promoters Rakesh Wadhawan and Sarang Wadhawan in connection with the multi-crore Punjab & Maharashtra Cooperative (PMC) Bank scam. The ED submitted its chargesheet, running into around 7,000 pages, before a special court set up under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act.
The Wadhawans have been booked under various provisions of the PMLA.
The two were initially arrested by Mumbai Police’s Economic Offences Wing, and later taken into custody by the ED in October.
The PMC Bank, which has around 16 lakh depositors, was placed under an RBI administrator on September 23 for six months due to massive under-reporting of dud loans.
