New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate on Thursday arrested former NSE MD Chitra Ramakrishnan in a money laundering case related to alleged illegal phone tapping and espionage of stock exchange employees after a Delhi court cleared the case to probe the matter.
Special Judge Sunaina Sharma allowed four days custodial interrogation of Ramakrishnan.
The former NSE MD was produced from jail to court on an earlier order passed by the judge.
The judge had issued a production warrant against the accused on the ED’s plea.
After the accused was produced, the ED took permission from the court to interrogate him.
Later, the ED arrested Ramakrishnan on the grounds of non-cooperation and produced him again in the court and sought nine days’ custodial interrogation.
The court, however, remanded him to four days’ custody to the agency.
Ramakrishnan was arrested by the CBI in a separate case and is currently in judicial custody.
