The CBI probing the multi-crore financial scam in Satyam Computer will soon approach the US to get the details of the IT company's disgraced founder B Ramalinga Raju's bank account.
Sources said CBI, which will be filing a chargesheet on Raju and other accused in the scam next week, will send Letters Rogatory to the US Justice Department seeking details of Raju's accounts in Bank of Baroda's New York branch.
They said CBI would also seek the help of the US Treasury Department to obtain the details of Raju and his kins' accounts, believed to be in Bank of America.
The details of the accounts, after being procured, would be submitted before the court in Hyderabad later, sources said.
The Serious Fraud Investigation Office (SFIO) had submitted a petition in a Hyderabad court "as regards to current account maintained in Bank of Baroda's New York branch, and a non-existent balance of Rs 1,733 crore has been found till date."
A supplementary chargesheet would be filed after receiving information from abroad.
CBI had said on Thursday night that the first chargesheet in Sataym would be filed on April 9 against Raju and other accused, a process which may lead to beginning of trial in the multi-crore accounting fraud case.
