Pyari Mohapatra appears before CBI for Interrogation

Bhubaneswar, Nov 21: The trouble has now begun for Rajya Sabha MP Pyari Mohan Mohapatra as he on Friday appeared before the CBI office here for questioning in connection with mega chit fund scam in the state.

Three days after the investigative agency raided his residence at Sahid Nagar, Pyari was asked to appear before the office for further interrogation to find out his alleged links with Seashore Group, the chit fund scam that has allegedly duped thousands of investors in the state.

The interrogation came a day after the central agency raided the residence of Lalit Pattajoshi, a senior journalist, for his alleged nexus with the chit fund group.

Pyari, who had been denying the allegations against him over his link with Seashore CMD Prashant Das, was under CBI scanner.
