CBI detains producer Shrikant Mohta

Agency News

Kolkata, Jan 23 : In another big move towards unravelling multi-crore Rose Valley ponzi scam, CBI sleuths on Thursday detained Shree Venkatesh Films chief Shrikant Mohta here.

Mr Mohta was detained after being interrogated for over two hours for allegedly transacting millions with Rose Valley head Gautam Kundu and Sharadha group chief Sudipto Sen. CBI sources have confirmed Mr Mohta admitted the exchange of money and CBI questioned him about the details of the transactions.

As it is, Mr Mohta had been summoned several times to depose before CBI. However, he appeared only once before the investigators. The CBI personnel today questioned him in the case in presence of police at SVF office, but was later taken to CGO complex in Salt Lake for further probe.

CBI sources have said Mr Mohta could not provide satisfactory explanations to many questions and was unable to support his answers on economic transactions with relevant documents. (UNI)
