Times of India quoted sources as saying that there have been tremendous pressure on police and judiciary to release Shweta Basu from the remand room. She was lodged in the remand room following her arrest from a star hotel in Hyderabad.
The daily quoted the source as saying, "They (extremely influential people) are worried that if she is in the remand home for too long, out of their reach, she might reveal their names and put them in trouble. If she is outside, they may be able to prevail upon her to keep mum."
23-year-old Shweta along with many other high profile businessmen was arrested from a star hotel at Banjara Hills in Hyderabad.
Despite all hullabaloos after Shweta's arrest, police maintained complete silence while they were asked about identities of the businessmen involved in the case.
