Cuttack: Sports administrator and former Odisha Cricket Association (OCA) Secretary, Ashirbad Behera, who was admitted to SCB Medical College & Hospital after his arrest by CBI, was discharged from the hospital on Wednesday a day after his conditional bail was granted.

Behera was granted bail by Orissa High Court in Artha Tatwa chit fund scam on Tuesday. He was earlier arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

Speaking to mediapersons today, Behera said, "It is the victory of truth. I don't want to blame anyone for the ordeal I went through. It was just a bad phase that passed."

The court had granted bail to Behera on two sureties of Rs 1.5 lakh each. Behera was also asked to surrender his passport and not to influence the probe and witnesses in the case.

The former OCA Secretary was arrested on the basis of a non-bailable warrant issued by Special CJM, CBI court in September.

According to reports, the CBI had filed a chargesheet against Behera and Director of AT Group on August 29 under several sections of IPC and Prize Chits & Money Circulation Schemes (Banning) Act, 1978.

Previously, Behera had termed his arrest a conspiracy citing that the timing coincided with elections of new office bearers of OCA.
