Odisha Sun Times Bureau
Bhubaneswar, Sept 11:
The CBI today began interrogation of another newspaper owner and builder at its office here this morning in connection with the chit fund scam in Odisha.
According to reports, Madhu Mohanty, builder and owner of Odiya daily Odisha Bhaskar was summoned by the CBI to be questioned on his links with the ponzi firm Artha Tatwa (AT) Group.
It may be mentioned here that the AT Group CMD Pradip Sethy, had told CBI interrogators earlier that Mohanty had taken a huge amount of money as loan from the company for his own business.
It is not clear, however, whether Mohanty has appeared before the CBI as a witness or an accused.
The owner of an Odia daily Bikash Swain, who was arrested earlier for his dubious links with the Artha Tatwa Group, is presently in CBI custody.
