Sushma Asthana, wife of Ashutosh Asthana, has not been named in the chargesheet filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on July 3. The investigating agency stated that no action had been recommended against Sushma Asthana and several other accused.

The CBI has also recommended her immediate release.

"We have not charge-sheeted her but it is up to the court to grant her bail or not," said CBI public prosecutor Suresh Batra. "Since she has not been charge-sheeted in the case, her custody is illegal now," said R.C. Saxena, Asthana's lawyer. "We have been awaiting her release from the jail. She is not involved in the PF scam," said Akshay Asthana, Sushma’s teenaged son.
