Sao Paulo, Mar 4 (IBNS): Brazilian authorities have detained country's ex-President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva in connection with huge fraud inquiry into the state oil company Petrobras.

"The former president's house was raided by federal police agents and he was brought in for questioning," BBC reported.

Silva has denied all charges leveled against him.

He had served as President of Brazil from Jan 1, 2003 to Jan 1, 2011.
