The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Friday arrested Jet Airways founder Naresh Goyal in bank fraud linked money laundering case, officials said.
Goyal has been arrested in the Rs 538 crore Canara Bank fraud case, and was questioned by the central agency today.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had filed an FIR regarding this in May this year.
The move follows the ongoing investigation by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) against Goyal, his wife Anita and some former company executives in connection with the fraud case.
The CBI had filed an FIR on the basis of the Canara Bank’s complaint, alleging that it had sanctioned credit limits and loans to Jet Airways (India) Limited (JIL) of Rs 848.86 crore, of which an amount of Rs 538.62 crore is outstanding.
ED had also in July conducted aids at multiple locations in Delhi and Mumbai pertaining to Goyal and his close associates.
