Ruia Group Chairman and engineering firm jessop and Co owner Pawan Ruia was flown in to Kolkata on Saturday night from New Delhi, where he was arrested by West Bengal CID officers in the morning.
Ruia was brought to the city under heavy police escort around 10.30 p.m. and taken to the CID headquarters Bhawani Bhavan.
Around midnight, Ruia was taken to the state-run premier health facility SSKM hospital for check-up.
Ruia was arrested from his New Delhi residence in connection with a complaint of theft filed by the Railways.
Ruia has been charged under various sections of the Indian Penal Code pertaining to cheating, dishonestly inducing delivery of property and criminal breach of trust with regard to missing railway property in the Jessop factory premises in suburban Dum Dum, a CID officer said.
The business group, which also owns ailing tyre makers Dunlop India, however, questioned Ruia’s arrest saying he did not hold any position in Jessop.
