Rastogi remanded in CBI custody till July 18July 11th, 2008 - 11:12 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, July 11 (IANS) Narendra Kumar Rastogi, who was deported from the US for evading custom duty worth Rs. 540 million in India, was Friday remanded into custody of Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) till July 18 by a court here. According to sources with the CBI economic offences wing (CBI-EOW), Rastogi is wanted in at least seven cases in Mumbai, apart from several other cases in Delhi.
The CBI-EOW was tracking the four Rastogi brothers - Virendra, Narendra, Ravindra and Subhash - for the past eight years. Virendra was also caught and sentenced by a London court for defrauding banks of millions of dollars.
Narendra Rastogi is accused of evading duties while exporting scrap material to different countries.
The fraud came to light after the Mumbai customs department launched an inquiry against 18 of its men for clearing a suspect consignment without proper verifications.
The matter was then referred to the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) which in turn handed it over to the CBI for further investigations, sources said.
