Former managing director and CEO of Infrastructure Leasing & Finance Services Ltd (IL&FS), Ramesh C Bawa, has been arrested in Delhi by the Serious Fraud Investigation Office (SFIO) today (13 April) for his alleged role in suspected irregularities which triggered a default crisis at the company, reports The Indian Express.
Bawa is the second person who has been picked up by the agency in the case; last week the former chairman and managing director of the company Hari Sankaran was taken into custody by SFIO officials for alleged misuse of his power to approve loans to firms which were not creditworthy.
