On April 9, the agency received information that the accused persons were located in Satara and had been lodged at a government institutional quarantine centre in Panchgani. Through an email, the district Magistrate and the SP were immediately asked not to release them without a no-objection from the CBI or court order.

Both the accused were absconding since the beginning of the investigation, the CBI said. They had also not joined the money-laundering probe being conducted by the Enforcement Directorate.
