Thursday, 17 June 2021 | PTI | New Delhi

The CBI has filed a chargesheet against the former international head of the Gitanjali Group of Companies, Sunil Verma, and others in connection with an alleged fraud in the PNB involving an amount of over Rs 7,080 crore, in which the promoter of the group, Mehul Choksi, is wanted by the agency, officials said on Wednesday.

Two officials of the Punjab National Bank (PNB) — Sagar Sawant and Sanjay Prasad — and a director of the Gili and the Nakshtra brands under the group, Dhanesh Seth, have also been named as accused in the supplementary chargesheet filed by the CBI, they said.

The supplementary chargesheet, filed more than three years after the first chargesheet, coincides with the legal proceedings against the fugitive diamantaire in a court of Dominica, where he was arrested for on May 24 after his mysterious disappearance from Antigua and Barbuda.
