He was produced in the court of Special Chief Judicial Magistrate P K Mishra after the completion of his 10-day CBI remand in two phases.
The judge rejected his bail petition and posted the next hearing of the case to January 25.
The MP’s advocate sought bail pleading that his client has all along cooperated with the investigating agency. The counsel also claimed that Bandopadhaya was ill.
Bandopadhaya claimed he was innocent and had no involvement in the scam.
The CBI in its charge sheet against the ponzi scheme company in January last year had mentioned that the investors from Odisha alone had deposited Rs 450 crore with the Rose Valley Group.
Another TMC MP Tapas Pal has been lodged at a special jail at Jharpada in the same scam.
