The spokesman said he has been arrested after being “arraigned as an additional accused (he was not named in the FIR filed in January). He has been produced before the court and has been remanded in judicial custody till November 26.”

The CBI team had gone to probe the alleged diversion of funds by disgraced Satyam founder B Ramalinga Raju to Mauritius for re-routing it back to fictitious firms set up by the accused in India, the sources said.
