For the time being, the police have handed over the Karnala Co-operative Bank scam case to the Economic Offences Wing and have not arrested anyone in this case so far. On Tuesday, bank customers demonstrated in large numbers in Panvel. 

According to the bank’s website, the Karnala Co-operative Bank had been established under the Co-operative Bank Act in 1996, after Vivekananda Patil received the licence from the Reserve Bank of India.
