Bhubaneswar, Jan 06: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Tuesday was allowed to take Pradeep Sethy, the CMD of Artha Tatwa (AT) Group, a major player in the mega chit fund scam in Odisha, on a 10-day remand.

The Khordha district and sessions court allowed the ED to take Sethy on remand to interrogate him in connection with the multi-crore scam in the state.
