    The duo accused in the Rs 12,000 crore PNB fraud case are abroad and have refused to join the investigation. ED and CBI sources informed OneIndia that the process of moving for a red-corner notice is underway. We will be getting in touch with the Interpol for the same, the source also added.

    The red-corner notice will help the agencies locate the duo. This would also pave the way for an extradition process.
