The CBI will soon file an additional chargesheet against B Ramalinga Raju, former chairman of Satyam Computers, in the multi-crore accounting scam that rocked the nation early this year.
"Siphoning of money, parking it elsewhere or tracing it into other assets, lot of that has little to do with criminal culpability of the kind that is already being put in the chargesheet of the CBI and they perhaps require an additional chargesheet for which the permission has been granted," Corporate Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid said.
The Minister said the chargesheet was needed to know "if and where the money was siphoned off to, whether it can be traced to other properties, whether it is violation of tax laws or violation of foreign exchange laws...
"The Enforcement Directorate and internal revenue are pursuing this and as and when they have come to conclusions they will file their respective chargesheets," he said.
Official sources said the Mutli-Disciplinary Team is also probing other charges of serious violations of foreign exchange and securities laws and the CBI is likely to file a secondary chargesheet in the case other than criminal culpability on the former Chairman in the scam.
