Former National Stock Exchange (NSE) chief Chitra Ramkrishna, was arrested last night by the CBI and was brought to the courtroom at Delhi’s Rouse Avenue Court today.
She was confronted with her former aide Anand Subramanian, but she refused to recognise him, the agency told the court today.
CBI is seeking a 14 day-remand of Chitra, to confront her with officials of NSE and SEBI, says CBI counsel in court
“We have recovered 2,500 email exchanges between the accused,” the CBI said, seeking 14-day custody of Chitra Ramkrishna, who has been arrested in a case of market manipulation.
Ms Ramkrishna’s lawyer argued that she had been questioned for eight days and that she appeared before the CBI on Saturday and Sunday, even after the court rejected her request for protection from arrest.
The CBI said: “She gave evasive answers and that’s why we had to arrest her. We need to confront her with the evidence.”
Ms Ramkrishna was accused of taking decisions under the influence of a yogi living in the Himalayas by market regulator SEBI (Securities and Exchange Board of India) in a report.
