Chennai. CBI has arrested Anand Subramaniam in NSE scam. This arrest has happened from Chennai last night. The CBI has taken this action late on Thursday night after the interrogation of former NSE Group Operating Officer (COO) Anand Subramaniam three days ago.
Anand Subramaniam, an accused in the co-location scam on the National Stock Exchange (NSE), was also an advisor to former NSE MD-CEO Chitra Ramakrishna. Earlier, the CBI tried to know from him in lengthy interrogation how he was posted to the post of COO. Apart from this, the investigating agency had also questioned him about the package of crores of rupees received by Anand.
Earlier, the CBI had also issued a lookout circular against former NSE Group Operating Officer Anand Subramaniam and former CEO Ravi Narayan, who were allegedly hired on the instructions of ‘Yogi’, besides Chitra.
