The alleged ₹25,000 crore scam in Maharashtra State Cooperative Bank will be heard tomorrow in the Mumbai Sessions Court.
For the unversed, a clean chit had been given to the directors along with Pawar after submitting the closure report in this case. However, now the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of the Mumbai Police is going to conduct an investigation again. In the investigation report of the alleged of the ₹25,000 crore scam of the Shikhar Bank, the then board of directors had been targeted for blame.
Circa 2011, the then Board of Directors was dismissed by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). An FIR was registered against the then director along with Ajit Pawar. However, the SIT had given a clean chit to 75 people from the State Co-operative Bank, including Pawar.
The closure report was submitted in the session court of Mumbai, a few days ago. Most of the directors, including Pawar received a clean chit in the report of the cooperative department.
However, now that Anna Hazare has gone to court, Ajit Pawar's problems are going to increase. Senior Adv. Satish Talekar will be representing Anna Hazare.
