New Delhi, Feb 26 (IANS) The Income Tax Department on Monday said it has filed six cases for the prosecution of Rotomac owner Vikram Kothari in connection with the Rs 3,695 crore bank loan default case involving Bank of Baroda.
A senior I-T official told IANS: “We have filed six prosecution cases against Vikram Kothari, owner of the Rotomac group, on Saturday under the Income Tax Act, 1961.”

Kothari is Chairman and Managing Director of Rotomac while his wife and son are Directors.
Kothari had obtained loans from Bank of India, Bank of Baroda, Indian Overseas Bank, Union Bank of India, Allahabad Bank, Bank of Maharashtra and Oriental Bank of Commerce, the FIR said.
On Thursday, Kothari and his son were arrested for alleged loan default after four days of questioning.
