Indian-Origin British Citizens Arrested at Delhi Airport for Allegedly Defrauding Indian Banks

The Delhi Police arrested Rash Pal Singh Todd and his son Mandhir Singh Todd for allegedly defrauding Indian banks to the tune of Rs 270 crore. The father-son duo was arrested on Aug. 30 from the departure terminal of the  Indira Gandhi International Airport 30 minutes before they could board their United Kingdom-bound flight.

Rash Pal Singh, 57, and Mandhir Singh, 33, are British nationals of Indian origin and run the Zenica Group, which owns Audi and Porsche dealerships in New Delhi and Gurugram, according to the Hindustan Times. The group also owns iZenica, a chain of retail stores that sells Apple products.

Quoting police, the report said that the duo posed as wedding guests while trying to flee India. The police registered a case against them on Aug. 29 and arrested them the  following day, barely minutes before their flight to Birmingham could take off.
