The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) investigating into the multi-thousand crore chit fund scam will bring two directors of a Ponzi firm on remand to Odisha for interrogation.
The CBI had applied in a Kolkata court to take Pranab Mukherjee and Prabir Mukherjee -two arrested directors of Ponzi firm Infiniti Realcon on remand.
The court Sunday allowed the Central agency to take the duo on remand.
“During the remand period both will be interrogated about their operations in Odisha,” revealed a CBI officer.
