Bhubaneswar: With no respite to scam-tainted Seashore Group CMD Prashant Dash from jail term, police took him into custody again within 24 hours of his release from Jharpada Special Jail on Friday.
Dhenkanal Police arrested Dash from his Jharpada residence with the help of Commissionerate Police this morning acting under a warrant issued by Orissa High Court in at least three cases pertaining to chit fund scam lodged against him in the district. The cases were registered at Dhenkanal Town police station.
Informing on the arrest, police said Dash would be quizzed on his involvement in chit fund dealings and would be forwarded to court afterwards.
The Seashore CMD was released from jail yesterday after the Orissa High Court granted him bail in as many as eight cases, all related to chit fund scam.
Prashant Dash was arrested by Crime Branch of Odisha Police from Mumbai on June 20, 2013 after a chit fund scam over Rs 500 crore surfaced against his company Seashore Group. Later the case was handed over to CBI which filed a 276-page charge sheet against Dash, after probe.
