CBI searches 7 locations in Mumbai; LoC issued

New Delhi: Day after crisis-laden Yes Bank co-founder was sent to 3-days ED custody, the CBI carried out searches at seven locations in Mumbai on Monday in connection with the scam pertaining to the Rs 600 crore alleged bribe to Rana Kapoor's family by scam-hit DHFL and issued a look out circular against the accused to prevent their escape.

The CBI has named five companies and seven individuals including Kapoor, his wife Bindu and daughters Roshini, Raakhe and Radha as accused in its FIR.

Dewan Housing Finance Corporation Limited (DHFL) and RKW Developers Private Limited and their then directors Kapil Wadhawan and Dheeraj Wadhawan, respectively also figure as accused in the FIR.

DoIt Urban Ventures controlled by the Kapoor family, RAB Enterprises (lndia) Private Limited in which Bindu Rana Kapoor was director and Morgan Credits Private Ltd in which Rana Kapoor's daughters were directors are also named as accused.

While 10 teams of the agency were involved in the search operation spread across swanky south Mumbai neighbourhood, the agency issued Look Out Circular against all the seven accused — Kapoors and Wadhawans — named in the FIR.

A look out circular (LOC) alerts immigration staff at all the ports of entry and exit to prevent the accused from moving out of the country. The Enforcement Directorate (ED), which arrested Kapoor, had already got LOC issued on the basis of which Roshini was stopped for leaving for London at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport, Mumbai.
