Hyderabad: The CBI today continued its
interrogation of former Satyam Computer Chairman B Ramalinga
Raju, prime accused in the multi-crore accounting fraud in
the IT firm, even as he maintained there was no fund diversion
to foreign countries.
Raju was grilled for the second day by a CBI team
headed by DIG V V Lakshmi Narayana. Six other Satyam scam
accused were questioned separately in connection with the
alleged diversion of funds to foreign countries.
"He (Raju) has been telling there had been no fund
diversion from Satyam Computer to other countries," Narayana
said after questioning Raju for close to four hours.
The Central agency also quizzed Satyam`s former
Managing Director B Rama Raju, ex-Chief Financial Officer,
Vadlamani Srinivas and former employees G Ramakrishna,
Venkatpathy Raju, Ch Srisailam and Prabhakar Gupta, who were
yesterday summoned to appear before the CBI.
"The questioning of Satyam accused will continue
tomorrow also," the CBI official said.
With regard to the alleged fund diversion, the CBI had
sent letters rogatory to six countries. Of these, the UK, USA,
Singapore and Malaysia had sent part replies, while response
from Belgium and British Virgin Islands was awaited.
A letter rogatory is a formal request from a court in
India to a foreign court for judicial assistance.
