**Bhubaneswar**: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), which is investigating into the multi-thousand crore chit fund scam in Odisha, on Friday quizzed a Bhubaneswar-based hotel owner over his alleged links with the AT Group Chit fund company.
The CBI at its office here grilled hotelier Kamalakant Das for around 3 hours to extract some information regarding the scam.
After coming out of the CBI office, Das said, “The CBI had asked me to depose before it in connection with AT Group and Seashore Group link. The agency sought information regarding a particular person from me and I have provided the info.”
The investigating agency also showed me some photos clicked with Subhanakar Behera and wanted to know the name of that person, Das added.
It may be recalled here that, Subhankar was working as a middleman between Seashore Group and top bureaucrats. Subhankar, who was arrested by the CBI on November 18, 2014, is currently lodged in the Jharpada Circle jail in the Capital City.
