J&K bank corruption: CBI questions former J&K Finance Minister Haseeb Drabu in Mumbai building case

New Delhi, May 20: The CBI on Friday questioned former Jammu and Kashmir Finance Minister Haseeb Drabu for alleged corruption in the purchase of a building for Jammu and Kashmir Bank’s integrated office in Mumbai’s Bandra Kurla complex when he was the Chairman of the bank, officials said.
Drabu was booked by the CBI following a reference from the Jammu and Kashmir government, they said.
He was questioned in Srinagar, they said.
The CBI has alleged that the bank had entered into a deal for its branch office at the Bandra Kurla Complex with Akruti Gold at a much higher rate than offered by other shortlisted builders causing a loss of over Rs 100 crore to the bank.
The case was earlier probed by the anti-corruption branch of Jammu and Kashmir Police, which had registered an FIR following a preliminary inquiry. (Agencies)
