Hyderabad: The Andhra Pradesh CID on Wednesday sought extension of custody of Satyam Computer’s founder B Ramalinga Raju, his brother B Rama Raju and the firm’s ex-CFO V Srinivas by four days.
The petition to this effect was filed in the court of 6th Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate and would come up for hearing on Thursday, prosecution lawyer Gangaraj Prasad said.
The court had granted police custody of the three, accused of engineering a Rs7,800 crore scam in Satyam, from 18 January to 22 January.
The extension of custody of the trio is necessary as the interrogation needed more time, Prasad said.
Three other petitions, also concerning Ramalinga Raju, would come up for hearing. They include Raju’s bail plea and one by Sebi seeking his custody for interrogation.
