The FIR filed by the CBI against M/s Shakti Bhog Foods Limited and others for criminal conspiracy, defrauding, and criminal misconduct leading to a bank fraud of Rs. 3269.42 Crore served as the basis for the ED’s money laundering probe. Without engaging in any actual commercial operations, Shakti Bhog Foods Limited used phoney sale-purchase bills from shell firms managed and controlled by Devender Kumar and other entry operators to syphon off loan monies and fictitiously increase the revenue of SBFL Group companies.

Three people—Siddharth Kumar, Tarun Kumar, and Ashok Kumar Goel—are currently being held in judicial custody. The Honourable Special Court has received one complaint from the prosecution and three supplemental complaints against each of the defendants, and the Honourable Court has taken cognizance of the offence against the defendants.Prior to this, the ED had attached a number of the accused’s movable and immovable properties, as well as those of other organisations, with a book value exceeding Rs. 100.44 crore. The current total attachment in this case is Rs. 129.11 Crore.
