BHUBANESWAR:The Commissionerate of Police has sent a two-member team to Darbhanga district in Bihar to record statement of Chitra Athwani in connection with the arrest of Deccan Chronicle’s vice-chairman PK Iyer.

The team comprising an Inspector and investigating officer of Nayapalli police station is scheduled to reach Darbhanga on Tuesday. They would ascertain how Iyer managed to stay in a hotel room in the city which was booked in Chitra’s name and whether there was forgery or impersonation in booking the hotel room.

Earlier, the police had sent summons to Chitra twice but she did not depose on health grounds. Chitra had also moved Orissa High Court seeking an anticipatory bail.

Iyer, an accused in Rs 357-crore bank loan fraud case, was arrested by city police on June 6. Soon after his arrest, Iyer was handed over to the CBI which is probing into the fraud case.

Chitra, an air hostess, had checked into the hotel with PK Iyer on February 14 and stayed with him for 10 days before she left.

Iyer, on the other hand, booked another room in Chitra’s name and continued to stay in the hotel till he was arrested.
