Rs.3300 crore fraud in SBI: The Supreme Court has stayed a Bombay High Court order permitting Suman Vijay Gupta, the chairperson of a Mumbai-based private company, to travel to the UAE after taking note of a case in which she is accused of defrauding State Bank of India of Rs.3,300 crore.

Mrs. Gupta is the chairperson of Ushdev International Limited (UIL). Solicitor General Tushar Mehta said to the court that these fraudsters leave India and our law enforcement agencies face various difficulties in the case. Thus, he requested the court to not allow Mrs. Gupta fly out of India.

"She is the chairperson of a company which took a loan of Rs.3,300 crore. The CBI is investigating (the case). After the loan was declared an NPA (non-performing asset), she renounced the citizenship of India and got the citizenship of Dominica," the top law officer said.

A look out circular (LOC) was issued and she was prevented from travelling. The Bombay High Court said that it will let her go if she filed an undertaking stating that she will return to face legal proceedings in the case against her.

"We have a very bad experience with the undertakings," Mr. Mehta said. The bench said, "We will issue a notice. Pending further orders, there shall be a stay on the High Court order."

He said the insolvency proceedings were initiated against UIL after the fraud was detected and the CBI later registered a case against Mrs. Gupta, who relinquished her Indian citizenship and became a Commonwealth of Dominica citizen while residing in the UAE. Mrs. Gupta had come to attend her nephew’s wedding and the LOC was issued in 2020, he said.
