New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Thursday filed its first charge sheet against National Stock Exchange’s ex-MD and CEO Chitra Ramkrishna, and ex Group Operating Officer Anand Subramanian in connection with the NSE co-location scam.

Both Ramkrishna and Subramanian, currently lodged in Tihar Jail under judicial custody, have been charge sheeted under various sections of the IPC.

The court, after accepting the charge sheet, fixed framing of changes for the next hearing.

The CBI’s probe in the matter is on and they will file supplimentary charge sheet in coming months.

The co-location scam denotes how some of the brokers, who in the co-location facility offered by the NSE, could place their servers within the stock exchange premises giving them faster access to the markets, had in connivance with insiders abused the algorithm and the facility to make windfall profits.

The CBI is probing the matter since May 2018.

Recently, the SEBI had imposed a fine of Rs 3 crore on Ramkrishna, following the market regulator finding that she allegedly shared vital inputs about the NSE with a mysterious Himalayan yogi, including Information on “organisational structure, dividend scenario, financial results, human resource policies and related issues, response to regulator, etc.”

On April 1, 2013, Ramkrishna became the CEO and MD of NSE and brought Subramanian to NSE as her advisor in the same year.

Made the Chief Strategic Advisor of NSE, Subramanian served at this post between 2013 and 2015 before being made Group Operations Officer and Advisor to the MD between 2015 and 2016, despite having no exposure to the capital market.
