We are quizzing Meghna Pandey in that connection. If she gives us a satisfactory reply where the amount came from we will leave her,”
Pandey, however talking to Hindustan Times said that his wife Meghna Pandey was first quizzed by the officials and then detained. “She works with a battery company and on Saturday evening some officials came and started quizzing her. They first took the mobile phones of all the employees working with my wife and started grilling her. I was told by an employee who was present where she was grilled that the officials were quizzing about Rs 10 lakh which we would have saved for buying a house,” said Pandey while talking to HT.
