The CBI on Thursday filed FIR against former ICICI Chief Chanda Kochhar’s husband Deepak Kochhar and Venugopal Dhoot in Videocon-NuPower case related to alleged irregularties in loan. The investigating agency also conducted raids at four different locations including Videocon headquarters in Mumbai and Aurangabad.
However, it is not clear that whether Chanda Kochhar’s name is in FIR.
Chanda Kochhar resigned from the post of CEO and Manging Director of ICICI Bank in 2018 October following the case which said that the bank provided Rs. 3,250 crore to the Videocon Group in 2012. The probe was launched against them after whistleblower alleged that Kochhar family was benefited from this dealings
It is alleged that months after the Videocon has granted the loan, the company’s head Venugopal Dhoot invested crores of rupees in NuPower Renewables, a company founded by Deepak Kochhar.
The ICICI bank has also announced that its board has setup a “comprehensive enquiry” to investigate the charges.
