Saradha Chit Fund Scam: Director Debjani under CBI remand
Bhubaneswar: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Friday took Debjani Mukherjee, the main accused in the multi-crore Saradha Chit Fund scam on a four day remand for furthering investigations into the issue.
Earlier on April 24, 2013, Kolkata CBI had arrested Debjani, the Director of company and Sudipta Sen the Chief of company from Kashmir. The company has also ill-captured a lot of money from innocent investors across the state through its hundreds of branches.
The CBI in this connection has registered a case has already started investigation into the matter. However, to get further more details, it has brought Debjani under transit remand to the city under tight security from Kolkata with the permission of the Special Chief Justice Magistrate (CJM) and produced her at a local court on Thursday.
CBI had actually demanded for taking Debjani under six day remand, but the court only allowed for four day transit remand.
It may be noted here that Saradha Chit Fund opened up its business during 2009. The company has allegedly cheated as much as Rs 200 crore from the depositors by establishing around 200 branch offices in the country, including offices at Bhadrak, Balasore, Ganjam and Bhubaneswar in Odisha.
