Bhubaneswar, Sep 20:-- Embarrassing the ruling party of the state, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Tuesday arrested Biju Janata Dal (BJD) leader Pravat Ranjan in connection with a chit fund scam in Odisha, media reports said.


He is the second BJD leader who has been arrested in connection with chit fund scam in Odisha since 2014.


Ranjan, who is an MLA from Cuttack-Choudhar in Odisha, has been arrested following the questioning by the CBI in connection with the multi-crore land deal on Monday night.


Earlier, Ranjan, along with his wife Laxmibilasini, who is a former Cuttack Zilla Parashad chief, were quizzed several times in connection with the case.
