Sources say two each from the CBI, the Enforcement Directorate and the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) are part of "Mission Choksi". Sharada Raut, the CBI's chief of Banking Frauds, Mumbai, is a key member of the team as the officer heading investigations into the PNB or Punjab National Bank scam that involves 13,500 crore extracted by Mehul Choksi and his nephew Nirav Modi as loans from the state-run bank with the use of fake documents.
