SC to hear PNB fraud case on Friday

|

New Delhi: The Supreme Court today agreed to hear on Friday a plea seeking a SIT probe and other reliefs in the over Rs 11,000 crore PNB fraud.

Two separate petitions were filed before the apex court yesterday seeking its direction to the Centre to initiate the process of deportation of Nirav Modi, who is abroad, and others allegedly involved in the case as soon as possible, preferably within two months.

One of the petitions was mentioned today before a bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud. The bench posted the matter for hearing on 23 February.

The PIL, filed by petitioner Vineet Dhanda, through advocate J P Dhanda, has sought setting up of a special investigation team (SIT) to probe the banking fraud, allegedly involving billionaire jewellers Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi.

It also sought a probe into the role of the top management of the Punjab National Bank(PNB).

The other plea, filed by advocate ML Sharma, had said that the SIT should consist of retired judges of the apex court while claiming that the banking has caused serious injury to the general public and the state’s treasury.

It should be investigated not by an agency “being controlled by the political leaders/authorities”, Sharma’s petition had said.

The plea has alleged that loans were issued in the case without following Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) financial rules and regular systems.

The plea by Dhanda has sought the court’s direction to the Finance Ministry to set guidelines for grant of a higher amount of loans of Rs 10 crore and above to ensure safety and its recovery.

It has also sought a directive for the constitution of a committee of experts who would find the details of bad debt cases in the country.

The CBI has already registered two FIRs — one on 31 January and another a few days ago — against billionaire diamond merchant Nirav Modi, his relative Mehul Choksi of Gitanjali Gems and others for allegedly defrauding the PNB of about Rs 11,400 crore.

As a Free Speech absolutist I am not for banning any ad, or any standup comic or any film that mocks Hinduism or Hindu gods, but perhaps it is time for these shameless hypocrites and propagandists to append their creative work with the following statement, in bold:

কীভাবে সুরক্ষিত থাকবেন এই ভ্যারিয়্যান্টের হাত থেকে? জেনে নিন...

@munawar0018 Nafrat jeet gayi?

Mocking Hindu Gods is comedy?

60 people being murdered by burning to death is a JOKE?

India is great & Indians are tolerant so only your insensitive shows are getting canceled

Write better jokes, don’t destroy the delicate secular fabric of our nation🙏🙏
