Enforcement Directorate (ED) arrested Yes Bank founder Rana Kapoor under money laundering charges in Mumbai at around 3 am on Sunday.

As per the officials, Kapoor was held under the provision of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) as he was allegedly not cooperating in the probe.

His arrest at the ED office in Ballard Estate took place after over 20 hours of questioning by the central agency. ED had raided his residence on Friday night.

The arrest comes after charges of alleged financial irregularities and mismanagement in the operations of the private bank surfaced and the RBI and the Central government initiated action to control its affairs.

The 62-year-old banker will be produced before a local court during the day to obtain custody.

The investigating officer of the case had recorded Kapoor’s statement under the PMLA when he was first interrogated on Friday night at his upscale residence in ‘Samudra Mahal’ complex in Worli area in Mumbai.

He was brought to the ED office on Saturday noon for a fresh round of questioning.
The ED action came after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Thursday imposed a moratorium on Yes Bank, capping withdrawals at Rs 50,000 per account, and superseded the board of the company with immediate effect.

As per the RBI’s draft reconstruction scheme, State Bank of India will pick up 49 per cent stake in the crisis-ridden Yes Bank under a government-approved bailout plan.

According to the reports, when police and anti-riot force started moving bulldozers on the houses, the residents and the local people also stood up with bricks and stones in their hands.

One of the locals said, “when the houses are already built, then why the bulldozer is being run by the administration to remove them.”

It has been clearly said by the Minister of Revenue and Land Reform, Ramsurat Rai that the government is not in a mood to be soft on the encroachers.
