"The investigation is under the purview of working capital loan and it may become the part of the existing PNB fraud cases".

It is alleged that the letter of undertaking (LoU) and letter of credit (LC) worth close to $2 billion were issued to the companies of accused Choksi and his nephew Nirav Modi from the Brady Road branch of the PNB in Mumbai through SWIFT (Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication) messages.
