The Enforcement Directorate (ED) continues to dig deeper into the high-profile blackmailing case involving Archana Nag and is planning to grill the mastermind and her husband Jagabandhu Chand face-to-face.
According to sources close to ED, the central agency is planning to take the couple (Jagabandhu and Archana) on remand who is the prime accused in the honey trap case and interrogate them face-to-face.
Notably, the ED had sought a 15-day remand of Nag to dig deeper into the case. The court while allowing the investigating agency to take Nag on remand has directed it to produce her on December 13.
Before going on a seven-day remand, Archana had said that she was waiting for ED and would fully cooperate in the probe. But she did not keep her word. She reportedly kept mum during interrogation. It is being said she is being pressurized not to reveal anything before the police.
As Archana’s remand came to end on Monday, the ED sleuths have planned to take remand of both husband and wife again and grill them simultaneously to extract vital information regarding the case.
It is pertinent to mention here Archana had leveled serious allegations against the police alleging that she was subjected to mental harassment for straight 60 hours at the Balianta police station. Having said this, she had revealed that she would cooperate with ED to bring the truth out but that did not happen.
Notably, the matter first came to the fore after renowned film producer Akshay Parija lodged a complaint against Archana Nag and her associate Shradhhanjali at Nayapalli police station on October 29 for allegedly blackmailing him and demanding Rs 3 crore.
