Crime Branch interrogates Sarathi's son Satyam today

Cuttack,August21:The Odisha Crime Branch today interrogated self-styled godman Sarathi alias Santosh Raul's son Satyam (20) over the money link.

Satyam, who was brought here from Mumbai and arrested, was sent to jail today after being produced in a local court here.

Earlier day, the SDJM court allowed the crime branch police to take Satyam on remand for three days from Friday, remanded him in judicial custody. Satyam was absconding ever since the public outcry against the godman erupted earlier this month.

Satyam was taken to the Choudwar circle jail on the outskirts of the city, where the godman is also cooling his heels after he was arrested on August 7.

Jail sources said the son is lodged in an isolated cell adjacent to the cell of his father and the father-son duo had a brief emotional meeting before they were separated.
