The CBI has registered a case against unidentified persons for allegedly using Prime Minister’s name to con people through a purported loan scheme.

The agency had received a complaint from the Prime Minister’s Office nearly 11 months ago alleging that the scheme had misused the name of the prime minister.

The perpetrators of the scheme had allegedly given a misleading advertisement in a leading national daily on July 11 last year, offering loans under the “Pradhanmantri Jan Kalyan Yojna” with no file charge, no guarantor with zero per cent interest, 60% rebate within 12 hours by logging on www.satyamgroup.org, the complaint alleged.

“This appears to be a clear case of forgery/impersonation wherein the name of PM has been misused,” it alleged.
