Archana Nag, the mastermind behind the honey trap case, was sent to Jharapada jail after the Additional District Judge (ADJ)-3 in Bhubaneswar rejected the Enforcement Directorate's petition to take her on fresh remand.

The national probing agency produced Archana before the court on Sunday after her six-day remand period ended today and sought the court's permission to take her on remand for two more days for further questioning which was later turned down by the court.

In the first phase, ED had taken Archana on a seven-day remand for interrogation. But reports claim that accused Archana didn’t cooperate with ED during the entire interrogation process.

As of now, the digital evidence of the accused couple is yet to be submitted by the forensic lab.

Previously, ED interrogated the accused couple in this regard but Archana did not cooperate citing health issues.
