Bengaluru: Rebel Congress MLA Roshan Baig was released here from detention on Tuesday after several hours of questioning from Monday night by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) probing the alleged IMA ponzi scheme.

Baig, detained by sleuths of the team before he was to board a chartered plane to an unknown destination from the Bengaluru airport, let go with a rider that he will have to turn up on July 19 for further questioning, SIT sources said.

The SIT had asked Baig, to appear before it on July 15 but he did not turn up citing important works and had instead said he would be available on July 25.

The MLA was quizzed for the whole night on Monday and was released at about 12.30 pm on Tuesday, the sources said.

“He was taken for enquiry. He has been asked to appear on July 19,” a police officer in the SIT told PTI.

Speaking to reporters after coming out of the SIT office, Baig said there was some confusion in the SIT due to which he was detained.

The MLA added he would cooperate with investigators and appear before them on July 19 as well.

Baig claimed the SIT has permitted him to travel anywhere in the country.

“I wanted to fly from here to Pune last night but they were under some confusion that I am running away. It was deliberate. Some people played mischief but I will not blame anybody,” Baig said.

The rebel Congress MLA, suspended from the party for his “anti-party activities”, is among the 16 legislators of the ruling combine who have tendered their resignations from the assembly.

It was alleged Baig was about to fly to Mumbai to join other rebel MLAs camping there but he refuted the charge saying, we was on the way to Pune for some “personal work”.
