Police confirmed that they can seek further custody of the remand of the accused as investigation in the matter is in its crucial stage and there could be a possibility of involvement of more people.
Former CJI RM Lodha had filed a police complaint alleging that he had transferred a total of Rs one lakh to the account of his friend and colleague Justice BP Singh, which he came to know later was hacked.
Fraudsters allegedly used B P. Singh's email account to dupe Lodha of Rs. 1 lakh by requesting him of financial help from Singh's account. Lodha transferred the amount to the bank account stated in the email. He was later informed that Singh could not log in to his email account as it was hacked.
