Meanwhile, IBHFL Wednesday moved Supreme Court, seeking urgent listing of the plea in which it was alleged that the company misappropriated public money.

Terming the allegations as “bizarre”, IBHFL had Monday said that the writ petition filed in the apex court is an attempt to “malign” the company’s reputation and create hurdles in its merger with Lakshmi Vilas Bank. “The total loans on the books of IBHFL is approx Rs 90,000 crore. The allegations of siphoning off Rs 98,000 crore is bizarre,” IBHFL had said in a statement.
