In an alleged nationwide Food Corporation of India (FCI) scam, the CBI requested voice samples of the accused. The court granted the agency’s request.
To determine whether the accused persons were involved in the audio recordings available to the prosecution, the CBI requested voice samples.
Three other accused – Rajeev Kumar Mishra, Ravinder Singh, and Satish Kumar Verma – have also been granted an extension of their police remands.
In his argument on behalf of the CBI, Narender Singh, the public prosecutor, requested that the accused be remanded for a further nine days. He said it was necessary for them to be confronted with other accused persons and with digital data from laptops and mobile phones, as well as for further investigation into the conspiracy and the role of unknown individuals.
During their remand, the accused did not fully cooperate and some important aspects were not resolved.
The accused’s counsel, Siddharth Pandit, opposed the remand by stating that no further investigations would be conducted.
