New Delhi, Sept 10 (IBNS): Taking the investigation ahead, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Wednesday interrogated Trinamool Congress’ Rajya Sabha MP Srinjoy Bose in connection to the multi-crore Saradha chit fund scam.

According to media reports, The Special Crime branch of CBI on Wednesday quizzed Srinjoy Bose in connection with the multi-crore Saradha ponzi scam.

CBI sources told that the Rajya Sabha MP was served summon notice on Tuesday.

Srinjoy on Wednesday arrived in the agency’s Eastern head-quarters situated in CGO Complex in Salt Lake where he was quizzed by sleuths for 4 hours, media reported.

Bose, who owns the popular Bengali daily ‘Pratidin’, once employed the suspended TMC Rajya Sabha member Kunal Ghosh as editor of the newspaper.

Ghosh is currently in prison for his alleged involvement in Saradha scam.

Not only that, Srinjoy also heads Kolkata’s century-old iconic Mohun Bagan Athletic Club.

The club’s foremost rival East Bengal Club official Debabrata Biswas was last month arrested by CBI in relation to Saradha ponzi scam.

According to reports, incriminating documents and Fixed Deposit Receipts worth Rs 25 lakh were recovered from his residence when the CBI carried out searches in it.

Apart from Debabrata, two others were till date arrested by CBI in this multi-crore scam, one of them being Kolkata-based businessman Sandhir Agarwal.

On Tuesday the investigating agency arrested after former DGP of West Bengal Rajat Majumdar.

Majumdar is said to have close links to Saradha Group CMD Sudipta Sen, who is currently in jail.

Majumdar, who had worked as Director General (Armed Police) in West Bengal, was believed to be associated with the Saradha Group, which is caught in the chit fund scam worth crores of rupees belonging to the investors.

Majumdar was being treated in a government hospital after he complained of chest pain immediately after his arrest on Tuesday night.

He was admitted in the ICU and several tests were conducted on him.

Suspended Trinamool Congress MP Kunal Ghosh has earlier accused the West Bengal Chief Minister of having benefitted the most from the multi-crore Saradha chit fund scam.

The Saradha Group that went bust last year left lakhs of depositors in a fix. 

Saradha Group chief Sudipta Sen and Saradha Group director Debjani Mukherjee were arrested in April 2013 from Jammu and Kashmir.

He was absconding since Saradha Group collapsed.

The duo is now in jail in the ponzi scam. Sen had claimed that he was blackmailed and used by politicians mainly from Banerjee's Trinamool Congress.
