New Delhi, Jan 16 (PTI) The CBI carried out searches at two locations in Delhi and Faridabad on Thursday after registering an FIR against Vibha Overseas Exim Pvt Ltd and its directors for allegedly causing a loss of Rs 166 crore to Union Bank of India in a bank loan forgery case, officials said.

The probe agency has booked Vibha Overseas Exim Pvt Ltd directors Alok Gupta and Vibha Gupta, and carried out searches at the residences in Delhi's New Friends Colony on and the company's office in Faridabad, they said.
