The CB-CID inquiry into the Rs 7,136-crore Satyam Computer Services fraud is apparently going nowhere, as the tainted founder of the company, Ramalinga Raju, is allegedly not cooperating with the investigating agency.
The sleuths of the CB-CID started interrogating Raju, his brother Rama Raju and former CFO Srinivas Vadlamani on Sunday for their alleged involvement in the fraud. All the three accused were taken into CID custody and were brought to the CID office amid tight security.
On Sunday, Raju was questioned for half-an-hour. But later sessions also failed to produce any results. The CB-CID released a list of 17 questions that they had asked Raju and received either ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ or total silence from him. On a few occasions, he said he couldn’t remember the details. On other occasions, he parried the questions, and said he would have to consult his lawyers before answering.
