Bhubaneswar: Blackmailer Archana Nag, who is facing investigation by the Enforcement Directorate (ED), asked the media the whereabouts of victims in the case.
“Where are the so-called victims? I was arbitrarily arrested and my family members were under the surveillance,” said Archana after appearing before the District & Sessions Court, Bhubaneswar, today.
When she was asked about huge amount she allegedly accumulated, she said, “I want everything should be probed. The truth will come out if the CBI investigates the case,” adding, “I have not taken a single rupee from Akshay Parija.”
“Where is Shradhanjali now? Why she is hiding? Why she is not coming in front of the media?” she further asked while being taken back to the judicial custody.
Meanwhile, the ED appealed to the court seeking to take Archana on a 15-day remand.
Archana is currently lodged at Jharpada Special Jail in Bhubaneswar following a complaint by filmmaker Akshay Parija.
According to the complaint, Archana was involved in a sextortion case. She demanded Rs 3 crore from Parija threatening him of making his objectionable videos and photographs with a woman public.
