The former statutory auditors of Satyam Computers Limited have told the special court going into the scam that the prosecution failed to produce a single paper to show they committed any of the offences for which they were sought to be charged.
The auditors — S. Gopalakrishnan and Talluri Srinivas — informed the court through their senior counsel A. Raghunathan that they believed all was true and fair with the accounts of the company until the scam broke out. They were not expected to function as detectives to find out whether the company committed a crime. The counsel asked the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) not to ‘unnecessarily' invite the court to frame charges against the duo when there was no ground.
Raju in court
Earlier, former Satyam chairman B. Ramalinga Raju marked his attendance for the second day after he was released on bail by the High Court and left the court. He told media persons that he was relieved at getting the bail but refused to discuss more stating that the matter was sub judice. To another question , he said he was feeling weak because his blood count had fallen.
