BHUBANESWAR, Sept 22 � Barely 10 days after he resigned, the CBI today arrested Odisha�s former Advocate General Ashok Mohanty for allegedly abusing his official position and misappropriating funds of the Artha Tatwa Group of companies in a case which is an offshoot of the Saradha chit fund scam, reports PTI.

After several rounds of questioning by the Special Investigating Unit formed by the CBI, Mohanty was picked up from his residence in Cuttack and informed that he had been placed under arrest.

After a mandatory medical check-up, the former top law officer of the state was brought to the CBI office on charges of allegedly misappropriating money from the Artha Tatwa, a ponzi company which allegedly duped investors of crores of rupees in the state.

�Truth will ultimately come out. God and Guru are my witnesses. As per my conscience, I have not committed any wrong,� Mohanty told reporters while being taken inside CBI�s state headquarters here.

Mohanty was interrogated by the CBI on September 13, a day after he resigned from the advocate general�s post and had denied allegations that he got a house in Cuttack free of cost from chairman-cum-managing director of Artha Tatwa Group Pradip Sethy.
