His statement came weeks after the Pune police on June 21 arrested the entire top management of the state-run Bank of Maharashtra for a loan of Rs 94.5 crore to the scam-tainted developer DSK Group allegedly in violation of its lending rules. Coming down heavily on the Pune Police for the arrest, the Minister said that nobody should overlook the federal structure of the nation. Jaitley further said that if the country wants an effective decision making process, it needs to put this entire relationship between investigation, who to investigate, when to investigate, what constitutes a crime, really in its place.NCLT verdict in Tata-Mistry case to be pronounced on July 9The Mumbai bench of NCLT (National Company Law Tribunal) on Wednesday deferred its judgement on ousted Tata Sons chairman Cyrus Mistry's petitions against the Tata Group.
