B Ramalinga Raju is said to have confessed that the Satyam company’s fixed deposits documents had been forged. He also confessed to diverting as much as Rs 20 crore every month from the IT Company. He also admitted to holding more than 400 benami land transactions running into thousands of acres.

The court extended the police custody.
