New Delhi: The CBI on Sunday raided 50 locations in Delhi in its ongoing probe in connection with a Bank of Baroda branch transferring over Rs.6,172 crore in foreign exchange to Hong Kong, officials said.

The premier investigation agency conducted the raids at the addresses given by the Bank of Baroda branch in Ashok Vihar area of north Delhi, which transferred the money via forex transaction.


“Most of the addresses given by the firms involved were found to be false. But raids continued at 50 locations in the city,” a CBI official said.

However, an official confirmed that the key figures involved have been identified and interrogation of important suspects was underway.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) along with the Enforcement Directorate on Saturday raided three premises including the Bank of Baroda’s Ashok Vihar branch, and residential premises of two bank officials whose roles have reportedly emerged in the forex transaction case.

Saturday’s raid was conducted a day after the Congress hit out at the Narendra Modi government in relation with transactions at the Bank of Baroda branch, saying they were in contravention of rules.

The CBI on Saturday also registered a case against 59 account holders and unknown bank officials and private people in the case.

The case, registered under various sections related to criminal conspiracy, cheating and corruption, was filed as the probe agency raided the Ashok Vihar branch of the bank.

“It was alleged that 59 current account holders and unknown bank officials conspired to send overseas remittances, mostly to Hong Kong, of foreign exchange worth approximately Rs.6,000 crore in illegal and irregular manner in violation of established banking norms under the garb of payments towards suspected non-existent imports,” a CBI statement said on Saturday.

India has been ranked 139 out of 149 countries in the list of UN World Happiness Report 2021.

By Aishwarya Jain

According to the World Happiness Report 2021 which was released by the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network, Finland was once again crowned as the world's happiest country. India has been ranked 139 out of 149 countries in the list of UN World Happiness Report 2021. To make society happy, firstly it is really important to spread awareness on how it is okay to relax, chill and take a break. People tend to normalise overworking, which is so wrong. Of Course, we need a job to live and sustain ourselves but you shouldn't be working yourself to death, and the fact that this is seen as normal is really worrying. You spend more hours at work than you do awake at home, so if those hours are drenched in misery then sadness basically becomes the norm. A study from Gallup (2017) found that happier employees were more engaged, which resulted in improved customer relationships, and a 20 percent increase in sales.

Also, lowering down the crime level would act as a major factor towards a happy society. People who witness crimes, or come across evidence of a crime in their local area, can suffer anxiety and may feel demoralised or powerless. We should also teach them to stop judging people by materialistic things and accept everyone with all their flaws. Media plays an important role in making society happy because they have the power of reaching out to billions of people and helping them out through a solution-based approach.
