Ramalinga Raju New Delhi, Mar 26 (ANI): The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Thursday said that it wants the Satyam Computers Services founder Ramalinga Raju to undergo a lie detector test in connection with the multi-billion fraud at the IT major.

“We have filed an application in a Hyderabad court that we would like to do a polygraph test on Raju. Because we feel that Raju has not shared everything with us. We need more evidences. This is a case of corporate fraud,” CBI Director Ashwani Kumar told reporters in a press conference here.

Besides Raju, the CBI also wants his brother B. Rama Raju and former Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Vadlamani Srinivas to undergo the test.

On January 7, Raju confessed that he had cooked the company’s account books and inflated profits over the past several years.

The CBI Director also said that the CBI is probing the origin of some documents reported in the media in connection with Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Mulayam Singh Yadav’s disproportionate assets case.

“In some newspapers and news channels some documents have come, which we feel is not right. They are false, fabricated and forged. We are investigating the matter as to how these documents reach to the media. This is being probed and the report will be presented in the Supreme Court very soon,” he added.

The CBI had received criticism from the Supreme Court for frequently changing its position in the Mulayam Singh Yadav’s case. (ANI)
