Mysterious ‘Yogi’ case: Former NSE CEO Chitra Ramakrishna questioned by psychologist

Chitra Ramakrishna, former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the National Stock Exchange (NSE), has been questioned by a psychologist in the ‘co-location’ scam case. CBI officials gave this information on Saturday. The psychologist said that Chitra was giving evasive answers in the interrogation related to the scam. Let us inform that the CBI is investigating the ‘Co-location’ scam case.

Officials said that the central probe agency CBI questioned Chitra for three days but during this time she allegedly did not answer the questions properly. The agency then hired a senior psychologist from the Central Forensic Science Lab (CFSL) to ascertain the actual facts.

During the hearing of Chitra Ramakrishna’s anticipatory bail plea, the CBI informed about taking the services of a psychologist for interrogation in a special CBI court. CFSL is a forensic lab under the control of CBI.

The agency told the court, “Senior forensic psychologist of CFSL found that Chitra Ramakrishna was evasive in her answers. She always maintained that the information about this was with the employees working in the positions below her.”

Earlier, a SEBI report had revealed that Chitra Ramakrishna ran the exchange for years at the behest of a mysterious “yogi”. After some new facts were revealed in the SEBI report, the CBI expanded the scope of investigation in the co-location case and on February 25, the Group Operating Officer (GOO) of NSE, Anand Subramanian was arrested.

Meanwhile, Chitra Ramakrishna filed an anticipatory bail application in the court to evade arrest, which was rejected by the court on Saturday.

Earlier, Anand Subramanian was described as the mysterious “yogi” in the forensic audit. However, SEBI had refuted this claim in its final report.

Chitra Ramakrishna became the CEO of NSE in 2013. He later appointed Subramaniam as his advisor, who was later promoted as GOO at a hefty salary package of Rs 4.21 crore per annum.
