The new criminal case is related to the alleged cheating of Axis Bank after availing the credit facility of Rs 159 crore. Parthasarathy and seven others were arrested by the Hyderabad police in 2021 for duping IndusInd bank to the tune of Rs 137 crore .

KSBL is accused of fraudulently transferring shares belonging to its clients to its own demat account. It then pledged the shares held in these accounts with the lender banks — HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, IndusInd Bank and Axis Bank. KSBL credited the funds raised by pledging of client securities to six of its own ‘Stock Broker-own Accounts’ instead of the ‘Stock Broker-Client Account’.
