Hours after he was dramatically detained from flying out of Bengaluru, the special investigation team (SIT), has released Congress MLA Roshan Baig after questioning him about his alleged links in the multi-crore IMA scam case.

Roshan Baig was detained by SIT on Monday night from Bengaluru’s Kempegowda International Airport when he was about to board a chartered plane, Karnataka Cheif Minister H D Kumaraswamy said.

Baig’s son had moved the Karnataka High Court on Tuesday challenging the SIT’s move. Baig has now been asked to appear before SIT on July 19 for further interrogation, ANI reported.

The news of his detention on Monday evening was tweeted by Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy himself.

The CM has accused the BJP of helping Baig allegedly escape from the probe, and for allegedly destabilising the state government.

Baig was supposed to appear before the SIT Monday but citing some work he did not turn up and sought time till July 25 but the investigators asked him to depose on July 19 instead.

Roshan Baig is in the middle of a controversy over his links with IMA scam accused Mohammed Mansoor Khan, who has gone absconding, leaving thousands of customers in the lurch.

After Khan went absconding, an audio clip purportedly by Khan surfaced on social media, in which he blamed Baig for extorting hundreds of crores for him, because of which his company had suffered losses.
