Hyderabad: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) issued summons to former union minister and TDP Rajya Sabha MP Sujana Chowdary on Thursday in a bank fraud case. The Bangalore branch of investigating agency directed the TDP leader to appear before it in relation to a 2017 case where he is accused of financial irregularities. The TDP MP is expected to appear before the CBI on Friday.

Sujana Chowdary is accused of obtaining Rs 364 crore from the Central Bank of India, Corporation Bank, and Andhra Bank through Best and Crompton Engineering Private Limited in a “deceitful” manner through falsification of accounts and submission of false statements.

It may be recalled that the Enforcement Directorate had carried out raids in November 2018 on Sujana Chowdary’s properties for allegedly cheating the consortium of banks. The ED had already attached properties worth Rs 315 crore owned by the TDP MP.
