CBI Interrogates Senior Odisha Cop in Chit Fund Scam


BHUBANESWAR: Odisha’s Central Range IG RP Koche on Thursday admitted that he was interrogated by the CBI in connection with Seashore chit fund scam. He, however, did not divulge more over the development.

“This is an investigative process, and I cannot divulge details of it. I have given clarification on what I was asked,” Koche told media.

Koche was on Wednesday grilled by CBI sleuths at an undisclosed location in the capital city for his alleged links with chit fund firm Seashore. The top IPS officer was questioned as his name figured in a diary seized from the possession of one Subhankar Nayak, a broker arrested by the CBI in 2014.

Earlier, two IPS officers were interrogated by the CBI. Notably, Rajesh Kumar, DIG of north-central range in Talcher, was also interrogated by the CBI in December 2014 in connection with Seashore chit fund scam.
Seashore chief Prasant Das is cooling his heels in jail, and many assets of the company have been seized by the police.
