Bhubaneswar, Dec 06: Odisha Cricket Association (OCA) contractor Sanjay Mishra appeared before the CBI for the second time today for interrogation in the chit fund scam. Yesterday, two OCA officials had appeared before the agency in this connection.

Sanjay Mishra is likely to be asked about the financial transactions with the AT Group, a major player in the ponzi scam. He was summoned along with the OCA Accountant MA Ahad and auditor Basanta Behera by the CBI for the interrogation.

Since, the officials had a tough schedule yesterday and were engaged at meetings after CBI joint director Rrajiv Singh and SIT DIG S Bagchi visited Odisha capital and held discussions regarding the chit fund case, the duo were asked to leave in the evening after a long wait to be quizzed.

However, it is not clear whether Ahad and Behera would appear before the CBI today or not.
