AT Group ponzi scam: SC asks CBI to submit report within 4 weeks on BJD MLA’s case


Bhubaneswar: The Supreme Court (SC) on Monsay directed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to submit its inquiry report on the Artha Tatwa chit fund scam and the company’s alleged involvement in the ponzi scam in which BJD MLA Pravat Tripathy was accused.

The apex court’s directive came in the wake of the CBI’s challenge to the Orissa High Court’s order for granting bail to Pravat Tripathy who was arrested by the Central agency on the charges of his alleged involvement in the scam.

In its FIR, CBI had alleged that the company’s director and the BJD lawmaker had a very close relationship which was established during the period when Pradip Sethi was hounoured with Best Cooperator’ award by the State Cooperative Societies under the chaimanship of Pravat.

Pravat had been arrested by CBI on October 31 in 2014 and was later granted bail by the Orissa High Court in March, 2015.
