Citing sources, DNA reports that SFIO began a probe into the matter on Monday
and has 3 months time to complete the investigation.
“We will analyse the documents and then summon the Singh brothers,” the
report quoted SFIO sources as saying.
The corporate affairs ministry ordered the probe under Section 212 of the
Companies Act following reports that the Fortis Healthcare promoters took at
least $78 million out of the company without any board approval about a year
communication, written or otherwise, from any government authority with
regard to such a purported investigation.
"As such we have no knowledge of any investigation against the company," the

received any communication, written or otherwise, from any government
authority with regard to such a purported investigation".
The Singh brothers are promoters of both the companies. Earlier this month, they
stepped down from the boards of the two firms.
The SFIO, under the ministry, mainly probes white collar crimes.
Fortis Healthcare has also come under the lens of markets regulator Sebi, which

the Fortis issue. "We also received a reference on Religare from somewhere I
cannot disclose and it will be looked into," he had said.
