Bhubaneswar: The Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of the State Crime Branch on Saturday arrested a person for availing loans of Rs 54 lakh from two branches of State Bank of India (SBI) in Cuttack by furnishing fabricated documents.
The accused identified as Sarat Kumar Maharana, had taken a cash credit loan Rs 13.8 lakh from SBI Hyderabad and a housing loan of Rs 40 lakh from SBI City Branch in Cuttack.
