Arms dealer Suresh Nanda, whom a designated court on Tuesday sent to CBI custody, said he was receiving threats and was not allowed to meet his family members, a charge denied by the investigating agency.
After remanding Nanda to three-days of CBI custody, the judge asked him whether he had any grievances to which he promptly said "we have been receiving threats. CBI is interrogating us not for this case but for another case".
However, the arms dealer, whom the CBI accuses of receiving kickbacks in various defence deals, did not specify who was threatening him.
He said "we are not allowed to meet our family members, lawyers and anyone from outside."
On Nanda's plea that he had spinal problem, the court asked the CBI to take him to a government hospital for check-up.
