Bhubaneswar, Dec 5:

Choudwar-Cuttack MLA Prabhat Biswal’s wife Laxmi Bilasini today appeared before the CBI, which is probing into the mega ponzi scam in Odisha, in connection with the Seashore Group chit fund scam.


Laxmi Bilasini arrived at the CBI office here today after the agency issued a notice to the legislator’s wife on December 2 asking her to submit some documents.

“The CBI had sought more information for which I came here,” Laxmi Bilasini said after coming out of the office.

Earlier, the CBI had summoned her on November 26 to appear before it within two days. However, she had sent her representative on November 28 to appear before the investigating agency.

Worth mentioning, Laxmibilasini was grilled by the agency along with his husband in 2014 over their alleged links in the scam.

“My wife had a piece of land measuring 32 ‘gunthas’ at Benapur village in Jajppur district, which she sold to the Seashore group in 2011,” the MLA had said at that time after coming out of the CBI office here post interrogation.

His wife, however, had given a different spin to the land deal saying while the papers had been readied for the sale, the land was never sold.
