Orissa HC Judge Quddusi, in corruption case CBI court sends BJD MLA Biswal to five-day Judicial Custody CBI arrests BJD MLA in Seashore Chitfund scam case
The Orissa High Court today rejected the bail application of senior BJD MLA Pravat Biswal, who was arrested by the CBI for his alleged involvement in a multi- crore rupee chit fund scam case.
Biswal, the Cuttack-Choudwar legislator who is in a hospital since his arrest in September this year, had approached the high court seeking bail on health grounds.
His similar pleas were earlier rejected by the CBI court and Khurda district court.
Rejecting the bail application, Justice Biswanath Rath asked the Central Bureau of Investigation to complete the probe in the case within two months and submit the charge sheet as soon as possible.
The court also granted liberty to the MLA to move a fresh application for regular bail in the trial court after the charge sheet was filed.
Biswal is currently undergoing treatment in the SCB Medical College and Hospital here.
