Bhubaneswar, October 8: After gap of few days the CBI sleuths on Wednesday resumed their interrogation spree in the mega chit fund scam and quizzed Mumbai-based model and television serial co-producer Preeti Bhatia for third time in 16 days for her alleged links with Artha Tatwa (AT) group and its chief Pradeep Sethy.

Bhatia, who reached at the CBI State headquarters here alone this time, was questioned for over three hours in the afternoon, sources said.
