BJD MLA Pravat Tripathy Arrested in Chit Fund Scam

Bhubaneswar, Oct 31: Banki MLA Pravat Tripathy on Friday was arrested by the CBI that is probing the mega chit fund scam following interrogation for the fourth time at CBI office here.

The probing agency arrested the legislator on charges of his alleged links with Pradip Sethy, CMD of the chit fund firm AT Group. His arrest was clearly predicted after Orissa High Cour rejected his anticipatory bail plea in connection with the scam on Oct 20. 

Meanwhile, the ruling BJD suspended the senior leader from the party following his arrest today.
