New Delhi: Chitra Ramkrishna, the former CEO of the National Stock Exchange, was denied anticipatory relief by a special CBI court. In the NSE co-location case, the central agency had opposed her bail. Anand Subramanian, NSE's former group operating officer, was previously arrested by the CBI in Chennai.
Subramanian has been remanded in custody of the CBI until March 6th. Earlier last week, the agency interrogated him for four days in Chennai. According to preliminary investigations, it indicates that either he himself is the “Himalayan Yogi” or is aware of the identity of the mysterious Yogi who received confidential information from Ramkrishna.
Subramanian had been Ramkrishna's counsellor. Last Thursday, the federal government broadened the scope of its investigation into the NSE co-location complaint it filed in 2018. Sanjay Gupta, the promoter of OPG Security Pvt Ltd, Aman Kokrady, his brother-in-law, and Ajay Shah, a data cruncher and researcher, were arrested in 2018 by the CBI, along with unidentified NSE and stock market regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) officials, for allegedly conspiring with the trio to allow the illegal activity to continue for years.
