The National Bureau of Investigation has extended its criminal investigation widely towards Aarnio's inner circle, said the report.

The NBI also decided to investigate into the matter of the new house of the police official and its financial sources. The house is now under construction.

The law enforcing agency also conducted extensive search with the dog squad for the hidden money from the residence of the detained police official.
