Bhubaneswar: The Special CJM court here on Wednesday granted a six-day remand of Mayurbhanj MP Ramchandra Hansdah and two ex-MLAs, Hitesh Bagartti and Subarna Nayak, to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for further interrogation.
The CBI prayed for a 10-day remand of the trio in the court.
Before being taken to the court, medical examinations of the three arrested political leaders were done by a team of doctors from Capital Hospital here.
Notably, Hansdah, Bagartti and Nayak wre held by CBI for allegedly having links with a chit fund firm Nabadiganta Capital Services on Tuesday.
While being taken to the Special CJM (CBI) court, Hansdah said, “The arrest is part of bigger political conspiracy against BJD government. The central investigating agency is trying to gain cheap popularity out of this.”
Former BJP MLA Hitesh Bagartti said, “I feel sad. As I was a director of the company, I was arrested by CBI.”
“I want investors should get back their money,” he added.
