In rush to lend to Kingfisher, IDBI brass dumped rulebook: CBI


The Central Bureau of Investigation has accused IDBI Bank’s management of hatching a conspiracy with Vijay Mallya and others over loans that were made to Kingfisher Airlines in 2009 in violation of rules. Norms related to risk, compliance and collateral among others were overlooked despite Mallya’s weak financial position, CBI said in a 2,000-page charge sheet, part of which EThas reviewed.
