In its continuing expose on the involvement of leading financial institutions in money laundering, media website Cobrapost Monday said that 23 major banks and insurance companies were part of the racket. 

In a sting operation in March this year, Cobrapost had showed how private banks like HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank and Axis Bank were helping their customers convert black money into white .

In its latest expose, Red Spider 2, Cobrapost has revealed that the money laundering racket is happening at a much larger scale with top state-owned banks and insurance companies being part of it.

"Operation Red Spider 2 establishes beyond doubt that money laundering is not confined to private banks, and is not an aberration, as is being made out in certain quarters in the wake of the first expose on March 14 in which HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank and Axis Bank were shown involved in money laundering; it is rather endemic overarching the entire banking system and insurance sector, without exception, however shocking it might be," the Cobrapost release said.
