After PNB, another bank fraud has come to light.

The CBI carried out searches at the official and residential premises of promoters of Kanishk Gold Pvt Ltd as it launched probe in the Rs 824-crore loan fraud case, the officials said.

Jewellery chain Kanishk Gold Pvt Ltd has been named in defrauding 14 banks including PNB and India's largest lender - the State Bank of India (SBI) with an amount as close to as Rs 824 crore.

Kanishk, which has a registered office in Chennai's T. Nagar, is owned by promoters and directors Bhoopesh Kumar Jain and his wife Neeta.

A consortium - headed by the SBI - of 14 public and private sector banks had given a loan of Rs 842.15 crore.

The jeweller first defaulted in March 2017 where the firm failed to pay interest to eight member banks. And later, stopped payments to all 14 banks. Following this, the bankers visited Kanishk's corporate office, factory and showroom on May 25 2017, but they found that the facilities were shut with no activity and stock.

SBI was reportedly the first bank to declare the account fraudulent to the RBI on November 11, 2017.
