Meanwhile, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has filed a separate case against Kapoor on charges of corruption.

The CBI claims that a loan of Rs 3,700 crore was given to DHFL; a suspicious transaction of Rs 4,300 crore has taken place between Yes Bank, DHFL and DOIT Infra Ventures. 

Amid this, Rana Kapoor’s daughter Roshni Kapoor, who was going to London on a British Airways flight, was stopped at Mumbai airport on Sunday. Along with Rana Kapoor, a ‘look-out circular’ has been issued against his entire family, including his son-in-law.

The ED questioned Rana Kapoor’s daughter and wife at its office for around two hours on Sunday night. The ED investigation has revealed that businesses owned by Rana Kapoor and his family have caused the maximum damage to Yes Bank.

According to ED officials, an investment to the tune of Rs 2,000 crore, 44 expensive paintings and 12 shell companies are in the purview of the ED investigation. Rana Kapoor’s wife Bindu Kapoor and his three daughters - Rakhi, Roshni and Radha Kapoor - are owners of several companies.
