New Delhi, Feb 25: Former National Stock Exchange group operating officer Anand Subramanian was arrested by the CBI after expanding its three-year probe into the co-location scam in the exchange in view of "fresh facts" emerging in a damning Sebi report.

He was questioned for days in Chennai before the agency decided to arrest him, the officials said.
The Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) has charged former National Stock Exchange (NSE) CEO Chitra Ramkrishna and others with alleged governance lapses in the appointment of Subramanian as the chief strategic advisor and his re-designation as group operating officer and advisor to MD.
