The said scam had taken place between 2011 to 2016. Several bank officials had helped the accused persons misappropriate Rs 33 crore through loan. The officials had allegedly approved huge amounts in loan which had greater value than the total mortgaged property of the accused persons, sources said.

When the scam came to light, the role of several bank officials came under scanner as the borrowers turned defaulters and the loans became non-performing assets (NPAs), sources said.

An FIR was registered by Seraikela police on 22nd August last in connection with the scam.
