Bhubaneswar: Chit fund scam accused and Seashore Group of Companies CMD Prashant Dash was today released from Jharpada Special Jail in Odisha capital.
Dash walked out of the jail as he has been granted bail in eight cases against him.
Worth mentioning, the CBI, which is probing into the mega chit fund scam, had filed a 276-page charge sheet in which it had named Prashant Dash, his brother Pravat Dash and middleman Subhankar Nayak and accused the company of swindling Rs 578.20 crores.
Notably, Prashant Dash was arrested by state Crime Branch from Mumbai on June 20, 2013, before the case was handed over to the CBI under Supreme Court order. He was lodged at Jharpada jail since then.
