Abhinav, who had been absconding since the past eight days when his father and another official were arrested, is now in EOW custody. He was interrogated through the night and has made some crucial revelations.

"Most of the brokerage firms mentioned in the documents recovered from the office in Shakti Bhawan have been found to be non-existent on ground. Abhinav's role is suspected in these dealings, hence he was served a notice," an EOW officer said.

Abhinav reportedly took commission for investing the EPF money of UPPCL employees in DHFL, a private company and invested the same in his real estate business.Some Delhi-based businessmen are said to be his partners in crime.
