ED registers case in Rs 805 crore Mumbai Airport scam case

The Enforcement Directorate has registered an Enforcement Case Information Report (ECIR) against the chairman of GVK Group of Companies and the managing director of Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL).

The case has been registered against GVK Group Chairman Sanjay Reddy and MIAL Managing Director GV Sanjay Reddy. The ECIR also includes names of some Airports Authority of India (AAI) officials and nine other private firms.

The case is related to allegations of irregularities to the tune of Rs 805 crore. In its complaint, the investigative agency alleged that over Rs 805 crore was siphoned off by accused persons, resulting in a loss to the public exchequer between 2012-18.

Earlier the CBI had conducted searches in connection with the scam. MIAL said it was “surprised” by the case against it and added that it would have explained to the agent and provided necessary documents if a preliminary inquiry was conducted.

In a statement to India Today, MIAL spokesperson said, “We would have provided every assistance had the agency sought explanation or any document even if a preliminary inquiry had been initiated. MIAL is a transparent and responsible corporate entity that is committed to cooperating with the agency in its investigation to arrive at the truth”.

The CBI has also filed an FIR against G Venkata Krishna Reddy, GV Sanjay Reddy and officials of the AAI and nine other private firms on the allegations of irregularities to the tune of Rs 805 crore.
