The CBI on Wednesday filed second chargesheet in the multi-crore-rupee Satyam scam against the founder chairman of the company, B Ramalinga Raju, and others, including recently arrested internal auditor of the company V S Prabhakar Gupta.

The chargesheet was filed in the designated court in Hyderabad accusing Raju and Gupta under various sections of the Indian Penal Code for allegedly indulging in siphoning off money to tax-haven countries, including Mauritius.

As per the chargesheet, "the accused forged board resolutions and unauthorisedly obtained loans to the tune of Rs 1,220 crore for Satyam Computer.

"They also prepared fake invoices worth Rs 430 crore," the chargesheet said.

The chargesheet comes within days of the CBI team going to other countries to probe the alleged diversion of funds by Raju and re-routing back to India, official sources said.

The funds were routed back to India via European nations as "investments" in nearly 300 alleged fictitious companies floated in the name of his relatives, they said.

The CBI, which is probing the Rs 10,000-crore accounting fraud at Satyam Computer Services, has found during investigations that Raju had diverted big amounts to Mauritius from where the money was brought back to India via several European countries, they added.
