Berhampur: Datum chit fund company managing director Brajamohan Patnaik today was manghandled by angry duped investors in a local court here.
Patnaik was attacked by investors when he was being taken to the jail after being produced before the Odisha Protection of Interests of Depositors court in Berhampur.
However, police personnel escorting Patnaik safely took him away from the investors.
Both Patanik and his wife Tridhara were arrested from Bhubaneswar in November last year. Two cases were registered against the couple and some employees of the company in 2016 and May 2018.
The company is accused of duping nearly Rs 100 crore from depositors in Ganjam and neighbouring Andhra Pradesh through several lucrative schemes and also promising to double their money through deposit schemes.
