The agency on Thursday also carried out searches at 50 locations across 10 cities, including at the residences of former senior IDBI Bank officials.

It filed an FIR on charges of criminal conspiracy, cheating and corruption against British Virgin Islands-based Axcel Sunshine Ltd on allegations of perpetrating fraud through the loan accounts of WinWinD Oy and Axcel Sunshine Ltd.

Some former senior IDBI officials were also named in the CBI FIR.

Searches were conducted in Delhi, Mumbai, Faridabad, Gandhinagar, Chennai, Bangalore, Belgaum, Hyderabad, Jaipur and Pune, the CBI official said.
