The development comes amid a flurry of negative news for the parent of real estate firm.
Indiabulls Group is facing charges of alleged illegalities, siphoning of funds and violations committed by the promoters of Indiabulls Housing Finance Ltd (IBHFL).
A plea has been filed in the Delhi High Court seeking an SIT investigation into the financials of IBHL. The plea alleged that IBHFL, through its promoters and their various group firms and subsidiaries has been advancing dubious loans to companies owned by large corporate groups.
They, in turn, have been routing the money back into the accounts of companies owned by the promoters of Indiabulls, so as to increase their personal wealth, it alleged.
