Maharashtra asks ED-CBI to take scam-accused Wadhawans into custody

Mumbai: The Maharashtra government has asked the CBI and Enforcement Directorate (ED) to take custody of the scam-accused DHFL group’s promoters Kapil Wadhawan and Dheeraj Wadhawans — whose institutional quarantine ends on Wednesday, state Home Minister Anil Deshmukh said here.

Until they are handed over to the CBI or ED, they will remain safely in the custody of the state government

“The Wadhawans’ quarantine will end at 2 pm today. On Tuesday, we wrote to the Central Bureau of Investigation and ED to take them into custody,” Deshmukh said.

He though added that until they are handed over to the CBI or ED, they will remain safely in the custody of the state government.

A massive political row erupted after the Wadhawans and their families were granted permission to travel from Khandala hill station in Pune to Mahabaleshwar hill station in Satara district on April 8 – at the height of the ongoing Covid lockdown.

They were taken into custody on April 9 in Mahabaleshwar and shunted to institutional quarantine in a Panchgani facility.

The DHFL Group and the Wadhawan brothers are named as accused along with Yes Bank founder Rana Kapoor in the multi-crore scam which erupted early in March.
