CBI to conduct lie-detector test on Satyam Raju
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) said it filed a petition in Nampally court of Hyderabad seeking judicial consent to subject Satyam Computer’s founder Ramalinga Raju, his brother Rama Raju and the company’s former CFO to a lie-detector test, as the CBI felt they had not shared everything about the accounting scam in the company.
CBI Director Ashwani Kumar said the Satyam fraud was unique, as it was the founder, and not an outsider, who is the accused. He said that in this case of corporate fraud, the suspect had been the same person who had brought up this huge organization.
According to sources, the fraud involved could be close to Rs 10,000 crore based on over 7,000 fake invoices and forged documents retrieved by the CBI.
