The Central Bureau of Investigation has registered a case against Moser Baer India Limited (MBIL) and conducted raids at six places to nab its current and former officials for cheating the Central Bank of India to the tune of Rs 354.51 crore, a CBI officer said on Sunday.

According to the officer, Deepak Puri, Managing Director of MBIL, his wife Nita Puri, whole-time director of MBIL, son Ratul Puri, former executive director of MBIL, Sanjay Jain, director, Vineet Sharma, director, and other unidentified public servants and private persons were booked on charges of criminal conspiracy for cheating, forgery and criminal misconduct.

"They were booked on Saturday on a complaint filed by Murali Chetturi, Deputy General Manager of Central Bank of India. Chetturi alleged in his complaint that the accused persons cheated Central Bank of India to the tune of Rs 354.51 crore," the officer said.

Nita Puri is the sister of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath and Ratul Puri is his nephew.

Ratul Puri is also under the scanner for allegedly receiving kickbacks in the AgustaWestland deal through his companies.

The Enforcement Directorate has alleged that accounts associated with firms owned and operated by Ratul Puri were used to receive kickbacks and launder money in the Rs 3,600 crore VVIP helicopter deal.
