The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) investigating the Seashore Group chit fund scam in Odisha today quizzed the Manager of United Bank of India (UBI) Jagatpur branch in connection with bank transactions of Choudwar-Cuttack MLA Pravat Ranjan Biswal.
The CBI today summoned UBI Jagatpur branch Manager Debendra Mohanty and questioned him on the bank transactions of MLA Biswal, reports said.
Mohanty has reportedly told the CBI that Biswal has taken two home loans from the bank, out of which he has already repaid a loan of Rs 20 lakh and is repaying the Rs 30 lakh loan, reports added.
“He had taken a house building loan in 2009 which has been closed after repayment. He has taken another similar loan which he is repaying,” informed Mohanty to reporters.
The affidavits submitted by 11 persons who have claimed to have lent money to Biswal’s wife Laxmi Bilasini will be subjected to forensic examination, CBI sources revealed.
