The Vigilance Bureau (VB) has arrested Vinod Mahajan, one of the accused directors of Golden Projects Private Limited, Jharmari, Dera Bassi, who had been absconding since 2002.
Disclosing this here today, a VB spokesperson said the non-banking financial entity was registered as a firm with the government in 1996 by four directors — Rakesh Kant Syal, his wife Bimla Syal, Rumila Sinha and Vinod Mahajan.
