Congress president Rahul Gandhi today slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi over another bank fraud case that has rocked the Oriental Bank of Commerce (OBC). 

In a stinging tweet, Rahul took a jibe at central government, saying “Under Modi Ji's "Jan Dhan Loot Yojana", another scam!:”

“390 Cr., involving a Delhi based jeweller. Same Modus operandi as Nirav Modi. Fake LOU's. Predictably, like Mallya and Nirav, this promoter too has disappeared while the Govt looked the other way,” he said.

Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala also attacked the BJP government over fraud at the OBC.

“One more day. One more ‘Bank Fraud’ of RS 390 Cr. Modus Operandi is the same - Ponzi Bankers & Con LC’s. Dupe the Banks, Siphon off money. In Modi Govt, every fraudster can now ‘fleece & fly’!” he tweeted.

Six months after the public sector bank filed a complaint with the CBI, the agency booked the company, and Sabhya Seth, Reeta Seth, Krishna Kumar Singh, Ravi Singh - all directors of the firm - and another company named Dwarka Das Seth SEZ Incorporation.

The company has availed various credit facilities from OBC between 2007-12, which swelled to Rs 389 crore during the period.

It was found by the bank that the company was using Letters of Credit (LoCs) to pay off other creditors against the purchae of gold and other precious stone and transfer gold and funds outside the country using fictitious transactions, the bank complaint, now part of the CBI FIR, alleged.

The company was also engaging in business transactions with non-existent entities, it said.
