Cuttack: In a major setback to Odisha's ruling BJD’s Choudwar-Cuttack MLA Prabhat Biswal, Orissa High Court on Friday rejected his bail plea on Friday. Biswal has been arrested by CBI for his alleged involvement in the multi crore Seashore chit fund scam.
The court has also ordered CBI to complete its probe in 2 months. Apart from this, it also said that the legislator can apply for bail in lower court after CBI files a chargesheet.
Notably, Biswal was arrested by CBI sleuths in the wee hours of September 19 from his Mahanadi Vihar residence in Cuttack.
