Special court sends Kapil, Dheeraj Wadhawan to CBI custody till April 29 in Yes Bank case

New Delhi [India], April 27 (ANI): A special CBI court in Mumbai on Monday sent DHFL promoters Kapil and Dheeraj Wadhawan to CBI custody till April 29 in connection with the Yes Bank case.

A CBI team has taken the DHFL promoters, who are accused in multi-crore Dewan Housing Finance Limited (DHFL) scam and Yes Bank scam, into custody after their quarantine period was over for violating lockdown.

Earlier, Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh on April 22 had said that the state police has written to both the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) intimating them that Kapil Wadhawan and Dheeraj Wadhawan along with their family members will be released from quarantine and the agencies could come and take necessary action.

Twenty-three members of the Wadhawan family were placed under institutional quarantine by the local police after they travelled to their farmhouse in Mahabaleshwar from Khandala amid the nationwide COVID-19 lockdown.

DHFL promoters Kapil and Dheeraj Wadhawan had not appeared before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) last month in connection with the probe against Yes Bank promoter Rana Kapoor and others for money laundering. (ANI)
