The company has availed various credit facilities from OBC between 2007 and 2012, which swelled to Rs 390 crore during the period.

It was found by the bank that the company was using Letters of Credit (LoC) to pay off other creditors against the purchase of gold and other precious stone and transfer gold and funds outside the country using fictitious transactions, the bank complaint, now part of the CBI FIR, alleged. The company was also engaging in business transactions with non-existent entities, it said.
