Giving details of the scam and the investigation so far at a media interaction here on Friday, he said Rs 533 crore of that amount was routed through Canara Bank alone. “The scamsters floated bogus companies, created fake bank accounts and used those accounts to transfer funds to foreign countries,” the DGP explained. The Income Tax department first alerted about the illegal transactions and with the help of the Enforcement Department the scam was revealed, he said.
