New Delhi : The CBI today filed its charge sheet against two employees of Bank of Baroda for offences including criminal conspiracy and cheating in connection with alleged illegal remittances of over Rs 6,000 crore made to over 350 accounts in Hong Kong and Dubai from one of its branches here.
Additional General Manager S K Garg and Jainish Dubey, who headed the foreign exchange division at the bank’s Ashok Vihar Branch, have also been charged under provisions of Prevention of Corruption Act even as a probe to identify and nab main kingpins continues.
A CBI spokesperson said the charge sheet has been filed at Special Court, Rohini.
