The Serious Fraud Investigation Office (SFIO) has been the chief investigation arm of the Ministry of Corporate Affairs during the Satyam scam investigation now underway. Set up in October 2003 and drawing its strength from nearly 30 departments as diverse as taxation, police, forensic audit, information technology and others, the SFIO investigates cases of large corporate fraud. In six years, it has filed 756 cases against 30 companies.
Apart from Satyam, here are some of the other cases SFIO has been investigating.
