CBI approaches Interpol to locate Sabhya Seth
New Delhi: The CBI has approached the Interpol seeking to locate Sabhya Seth, the promoter of Delhi-based jeweller Dwarka Das Seth International Pvt Ltd, an accused in the alleged Rs 389.85-crore loan fraud involving Oriental Bank of Commerce, officials said today.
The CBI has started "diffusion" notice against Seth, who has not joined the investigation, even as the agency today questioned Reeta Seth, his mother and an accused in the FIR, and his wife Punita (not accused in the FIR), officials said.
They said they were being questioned at a location outside Delhi.
A diffusion notice is a less formal procedure in Interpol system, but is also used to request the arrest or location of an individual or additional information in relation to a police investigation.
"A diffusion is circulated directly by an NCB (CBI in India's case) to the member countries of their choice, or to the entire Interpol membership and is simultaneously recorded in Interpol Information
System," the Interpol website said.
The agency had issued lookout circulars against the directors of Dwarka Das Seth International Pvt Ltd, including Reeta Seth, accused in the alleged Rs 389.85-crore loan fraud at Oriental Bank of Commerce, officials said.
