The central probe agency, in a statement, said it has arrested Sanjay Jain and Rajeev Jain of Surya Vinayak Group of Industries, under provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
The duo, who are also brothers, were sent to Enforcement Directorate (ED) custody till August 25 after they were produced in a court in Delhi.
"Investigations so far conducted disclosed that Ms Surya Vinayak Industries Ltd and its owners/major shareholders and directors--Sanjay Jain and Rajiv Jain-- obtained loan and credit facilities from a consortium comprising 21 banks, led by Punjab National Bank (PNB), but did not repay the same. The resultant outstanding liability against the said company as on September, 2012 stands at Rs 2,066.60 crore," it said.
The ED took over the case early this year based on a CBI FIR.
It said that both the brothers had formed various companies like Surya Vinayak Industries Limited, Ms SVIL Mines, Surya Vinayak Wellness Limited, Surya Vinayak Agro Commodities Limited, Allied Perfumers and others and by "fraudulently inflating their actual worth" took large amount in bank loans.
"These loan amounts were diverted out of these companies, routed through many shell companies and used for purchase of immovable properties. Further, more than Rs 500 crore have been remitted outside India to their wholly owned subsidiaries," the agency said.
The agency, in the past, has attached assets worth Rs 78 crore of the group and its associates.
The duo were also arrested by the CBI in this case in the past and were out on bail.
