Kapoor was handed over to the Enforcement Directorate till March 11 by Mumbai’s Special Holiday Court on Sunday.

ED requested five-day custody of Kapoor and made a verbal submission to the court detailing the alleged financial irregularities of Yes Bank and DHFL.

The ED has alleged that the co-founder extended loans of upto Rs 30,000 crores and out of which Rs 20,000 Non-Performing Assets (NPA).

The authorities stated that these loans amounting to Rs 20,000 crores were extended to 78 companies that were close to the family and friends of Rana Kapoor.

The authorities needed more time to investigate the matter. However, the Defence Counsel objected to this claim.

Last week, RBI suspended the board of directors in Yes Bank and imposed a withdrawal limit due to the financial health of the bank.

ED had earlier argued in court that many family companies are involved and there are also some cases of quid pro quo made out of the case.

The Yes Bank crisis started last week which once again reflected the structural problems in the banking sector.

However, RBI has stepped in and taken measures under its Prompt Corrective Action framework.
