Satyam's disgraced founder B Ramalinga Raju, who was arrested on Friday for his involvement in a Rs 7,800 crore financial fraud in the company, on Saturday underwent a medical check-up after he complained of chest pain and uneasiness.
"Raju complained of chest pain and high blood pressure on Friday night. A team of doctors from Care hospital came to the office of Director General of Police at around 3 AM for the check-up," L Bharat Kumar, lawyer of Raju, said adding that his condition is normal.
The former chairman, who made a startling disclosure of about Rs 7,800 crore financial bungling in the company on Wednesday, was arrested on Friday and has been charged under sections 120 b, 416, 417, 420, 468 and 471 of IPC -- all charges relating to fabrication of accounts, criminal conspiracy and cheating. All these offenses are non-bailable. Raju is likely to be produced before a Magistrate some time during the day on Saturday.
Along with Raju, his brother Rama Raju was also arrested by the Andhra Pradesh police on Friday.
