The CBI investigation into over Rs 6,000 crore transfer (about USD 100 crore) to Hong Kong and Dubai through BoB Ashok Vihar Branch has indicated that the master operators were charging this premium by offering their channel to send the money outwards, the agency's chargesheet alleged.

The CBI has filed its chargesheet which reveal that nearly USD 100 crore were transferred from India to Hong Kong and Dubai using proper banking channel by evading the scrutiny of banking software which red flags every transaction above USD one lakh.

Sources said the agency has mentioned in its chargesheet that masterminds of the racket were allegedly distributing the fee of Rs 1.35 per USD among themselves with even the lowest rung of the gang (which were alleged account holders) made Rs 25-40 lakh in one year period from July 2014-July 2015.

CBI had registered a case against 59 current account holders and unknown bank officials and private persons on a complaint from Bank of Baroda.
