Bhubaneswar, October 8:
After gap of few days the CBI sleuths on Wednesday resumed their interrogation
spree in the mega chit fund scam and quizzed Mumbai-based model and television
serial co-producer Preeti Bhatia for third time in 16 days for her alleged
links with Artha Tatwa (AT) group and its chief Pradeep Sethy.
Bhatia, who reached at
the CBI State headquarters here alone this time, was questioned for over three
hours in the afternoon, sources said.
She had earlier
appeared before the CBI on September 23 and 25. On these visits, she had been
accompanied by her mother.
While investigating
into the money trail of the AT Group, the CBI had reportedly found business
links between Bhatia and Sethi, who were directors in a company with its
registered office at Santa Cruz (West) in Mumbai.
The CBI had also raided
Preeti Bhatia’s house in Mumbai.
