    Looks like this story is based on Indian bank scam happened in 90’s when Mr.gobalakrishnan was chairman of Indian bank. GK.moopanar’s brother got arrested as well if i remember right. PC has his hands behind this scan i think. here is the excerpt of a online article.

    The issue came to limelight after the 110-odd-year-old bank reported Rs 1,727 crore loss in the 1995-96 fiscal. Then, it was the biggest loss in the banking industry and the bank’s entire capital was wiped out. The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) initiated a probe into the scandal. But in November 1996, Deve Gowda called up the then CBI chief Joginder Singh to tell him that the then finance minister P Chidambaram was unhappy with the agency’s action against Indian Bank executive director T P Karunandan. Deve Gowda pulled up Singh for violating rules that prohibited CBI from taking action against any official above the joint secretary level.

    More details started pouring in subsequently with the bank’s chairman-cum-managing director (CMD) M Gopalakrishnan seen as the nerve-centre of the whole scam. (During the mid-1990s those who watched Doordarshan news in Chennai can tell you how Gopalakrishnan events got more coverage than any politician in Tamil Nadu! People would whisper that the many at the Chennai Doordarshan Kendra were beneficiaries of Gopalakrishnan’s largesse. Indian Bank also extended loans to journalists for constructing their flats/homes near Thiruvanmiyur and some of them are yet to repay.)

    Later, Reserve Bank of India (RBI) revealed that Gopalakrishnan got seven extensions during his 1988-1995 tenure as the CMD – unprecedented in banking history. In December 1994, the then prime minister P V Narasimha Rao sent a note to the Finance Ministry asking the appointments committee to let Gopalakrishnan “continue as CMD until further orders”. (Manmohan Singh was the finance minister at that point of time. )

    Gopalakrishnan was very close to G K Moopanar, once a Congress stalwart in Tamil Nadu and then TMC founder. Investigations showed that Indian Bank randomly extended loans to most people connected with Moopanar-Gopalakrishnan duo. The CMD was close to P Chidambaram too. There was one clinching evidence against Moopanar – that of Bank of Thanjavur giving Rs 2 crore loan to his brother-in-law Soundaraja Moopanar to start a chemical factory near Karaikudi in 1988. Four years later, Bank of Thanjavur in which Moopanar’s brothers were directors merged with Indian Bank. Bank of Thanjavur’s Rs 50 crore loss then was transferred to the merged Indian Bank.
