(SKAIPL) through their Directors had availed large amounts of loans by furnishing false and fabricated balance sheets of the company, forged & grossly inflated valuation reports of mortgaged assets, fabricated work estimates etc, and the said loan funds were diverted & the account become NPA and causing net loss to the banks to the tune of Rs 528.26 Crore (including the interest).
ED investigation established that SKSPL and SKAPIL represented by its managing director Thota Kanna Rao had secured various credit facilities to the extent of Rs 313 Crore from IFCI, IDBI and Canara Bank during the period 2014-15. The credit facilities were availed towards construction of storage facility for preserving, processing and resale of agricultural produce. All the credit facilities were secured through mortgage of immovable properties, stocks which were highly inflated in connivance with the employees of APITCO, MITCON and V C Rammohan, the then DGM of IFCI. Thota Kanna Rao had also manipulated the records /books of accounts and also managed to obtain fake work completion certificates and submitted the same to the financial creditor to justify the loans availed.
