Chanda Kochhar and her husband Deepak Kochhar summoned by The Enforcement Directorate for connection with a money laundering case related to a bank loan fraud, said the officials.
They said while Chanda has been summoned on May 3, Deepak and his brother Rajiv have been asked to depose on April 30 before the investigating officer of the case and record their statements under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act.
The searches were conducted at the premises of Chanda Kochhar, her family and Venugopal Dhoot of Videocon Group in Mumbai and Aurangabad.
This directorate’s action was based on a first information report filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation.
The CBI has named all the three and Dhoot’s companies—Videocon International Electronics Ltd. and Videocon Industries Limited. The CBI also named Supreme Energy, a company founded by Dhoot, and NuPower Renewables, a company controlled by Deepak Kochhar, in the FIR.
