Seashore Scam: After Pyari, Pravat Biswal appears before CBI

Bhubaneswar, Nov 21: The opposition parties in Odisha have enough stuff to corner the BJD after the ruling party MLA Pravat Biswal appeared before the CBI office for interrogation in connection with the Seashore chit fund scam in the state.

After Pyari Mohan Mohapatra, who might have disclosed many things during a four-hour long grilling at CBI office today, the interrogation of Biswal would give the central investigative agency vital clue to expose others involved in the mega ponzi scam

Choudwar MLA Biswal reached the CBI office at about 3.55 pm, about an hour and half after his erstwhile mentor Pyari Mohan  Mohapatra left the premises.

While going to the office, Biswal admitted that he was given summon to appear before the agency for interrogation.

He is likely to be questioned about a tourism project on boat ride on Mahanadi in Cuttack for which Seashore had signed an MoU with the state government.
