Bhubaneswar: The Special CJM CBI Court today rejected the bail petition of arrested Choudwar-Cuttack BJD MLA Pravat Biswal in Odisha capital.
The CBI on Friday had produced the legislator in a court two days ahead of the completion of the remand period who has been arrested for his alleged link with Seashore Chit Fund company.
The Central agency informed the court that Biswal’s interrogation was complete following which the legislator was sent to Jharpada jail here after medical examination. Later, he was admitted to the Capital hospital late at night as he felt unwell.
Biswal’s lawyer had applied for his bail on health grounds yesterday.
However, the court rejected the lawmaker’s bail plea after hearing the matter today.
Meanwhile, Pravat is undergoing treatment at Capital hospital.
