The Officers of the Central Bureau of Investigation are also raiding at least 17 places in Uttar Pradesh as part of their probe.
The truck driver and the cleaner are also being questioned. The truck’s owner had claimed that the number plates were blackened to evade recovery agents on EMI defaults. However, the loan agent clarified that the truck owner was not behind on payments.
The three-member CBI team grilled Sengar for several hours in Sitapur district jail, according to officials, days after the Supreme Court asked the agency not to take more than a fortnight to complete the investigation.
