Bhubaneswar: Among the 10 summoned by Enforcement Directorate (ED), businessman Amiyakant Das deposed before the agency on Tuesday in connection with the honeytrap racket case in Odisha.
According to sources, he is likely to be questioned about Rs 10 lakh deposited by him in the bank accounts of Archana and her husband Jagabandhu Chand in 2021-22. She had allegedly requested some businessmen for help with her husband’s treatment.
Filmmaker Akshay Parija, who had lodged a complaint at Nayapalli police station and accused Archana of demanding Rs 3 crore from him after capturing his intimate photographs/videos, is also likely to appear before the ED for questioning.
He was asked to appear before the agency on November 19 but had requested some more time citing health issues after returning back from Bangkok.
The ED officers have already traced Rs 2.5 crore deposits in the bank accounts of Archana and Jagabandhu between 2017 and 2022. She allegedly amassed over Rs 30 crore along with her husband between 2018 and 2022 by blackmailing and threatening some politicians and rich people.
