The CBI alleged that Rana Kapoor was paid a sum of Rs 600 crore for granting a loan of Rs 3,700 crore to DHFL.
Earlier on Sunday, Kapoor was arrested by ED under money laundering charges after being interrogated for almost 20 hours by the probe agency officials.
The ED’s action comes after the RBI superseded Yes Bank Board for 30 days and appointed an administrator, putting a cap of Rs 50,000 on withdrawal by account holders for a month.
The RBI said that the bank’s board was superseded “owing to serious deterioration in the financial position of the bank”.
