ICICI Bank pointed out that the board meeting is routine in nature.

The board had also reviewed the bank's internal processes for credit approval and found them robust, the statement said. But there are many unanswered questions: What was the collateral and loan guarantee to Videocon group's loan facility?

ICICI Bank had loaned Dollars 100 million through its Canadian subsidiary to Videocon, which was repaid in full with interest, Dhoot said, adding that there were enquiries by the Enforcement Directorate in the matter, but it did not find any wrongdoing under the foreign exchange management laws.

The agency has collected relevant documents related to the said loan given to Videocon Group.

A consortium of 20 banks led by State Bank of India and ICICI Bank as one of its members had thrown a credit line of Rs 40,000 crore open to Videocon which has been referred by the consortium for recovery of dues under IBC or insolvency and bankruptcy code before the National Company Law Tribunal or NCLT.

The CBI had questioned a few ICICI Bank officials as part of a preliminary inquiry to find if any quid pro quo was involved in the bank issuing a Rs 3,250 crore loan to Videocon Group in 2012. However, the revised invitations for the event circulated on Tuesday did not feature the name of the ICICI Bank CEO.

The bank had clarified that none of the investors of NuPower Renewables are current borrowers of ICICI Bank.
