Police had on Tuesday interrogated the company's Candolim store manager Chaitrali Sawant, who was granted anticipatory bail by a local court on Monday.


Earlier, four employees of the company's outlet in Candolim had been arrested after Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani, who visited the store on April 3, alleged that it had a CCTV camera focusing at the trial room.
