New Delhi: The CBI has filed a supplementary charge sheet against aviation consultant Deepak Talwar and his NGO Advantage India for alleged violation of foreign funds received by it, officials said. In its charge sheet, the probe agency has listed Talwar, Advantage India, his wife Deepa Talwar besides Girish Vaid, Krishan Kumar Nair, Tarun Kumar Kapoor, Archana Kapoor, and Pran Nath Monga.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has invoked IPC sections related to criminal conspiracy and cheating besides provisions of the Foreign Exchange Regulation Act in the supplementary charge sheet filed on May 3, they said.
The agency had filed an FIR against Advantage India on a reference from the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) alleging “misutilisation of foreign contributions” which were received under the corporate social responsibility scheme for the purpose of carrying out educational and social activities in India.
The agency had taken over this case in November 2017 on a reference from the Home Ministry by registering an FIR against Talwar, Advantage India, Accordis Health Care Pvt. Ltd. among others under IPC sections related to criminal conspiracy, forgery and provisions of FCRA act 2010.
