CBI likely to summon ex-NSE CEO Chitra Ramakrishna

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is mulling to summon Chitra Ramakrishna, the former MD and CEO of National Stock Exchange (NSE).

She has been accused of leaking classified information to one Yogi, who lives in the Himalayas. It has been learnt that this Yogi was Subramanian, who was brought to the NSE by Ramakrishna. He had access to the email ID on which the emails were sent.

On Thursday, the Income Tax Department had conducted raids at her house in Mumbai and in Chennai. Sources have said that incriminating documents were recovered during the raid.

The I-T department scanned various transactions and digital records. They also recorded the statements of a few of her employees.

Recently, SEBI had imposed a fine of Rs 3 crore on her. SEBI had uploaded a 192 pages order on its official website narrating how Chitra was allegedly involved in suspicious activities by leaking information.

Chitra had said that a sage, who lives in the Himalayas, was giving her directions. She also sent him emails regarding NSE.

She quit SEBI in December 2016
