Bhubaneswar: The Supreme Court (SC) directed Nabadiganta chit-fund scam accused and suspended BJD MP Ramchandra Hansda to move the Orissa High Court for bail.
The apex court also asked the HC to hear the bail petition of the Lok Sabha member within four weeks, sources said.
A special team from the ministry of Corporate Affairs had quizzed Hansda in Jharpara jail in Bhubaneswar regarding his links with scam-tainted Nabadiganta Capital Services last month. A special CBI court had allowed the Ministry’s officials to question him.
Hansda, who was arrested by the CBI in November 2014, is currently lodged at Jharpada jail in Bhubaneswar. He was suspended from the BJD soon after the arrest.
