Mumbai, November 4
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has filed its first chargesheet against former ICICI Bank CEO and MD Chanda Kochhar, her husband Deepak Kochhar and Videocon Group promoter Venugopal Dhoot on money laundering charges, official sources said on Wednesday.
They said the charge-sheet or the prosecution complaint has been filed before a special Mumbai court under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). The court is yet to take cognisance of it, sources said.
The agency had arrested Deepak Kochhar in September after it filed a criminal case of money laundering after studying a CBI FIR.
It slapped money laundering charges for “illegal” sanctioning of Rs1,875 crore loans to the Videocon group. — PTI
