CBI continues to grill Anjan Dutta

The Central Bureau of Investigation grilled Anjan Dutta again on Friday in connection with Saradha scam. The Assam Pradesh Congress Committee was quizzed for several hours at the CGO Complex in Kolkata for the last two days.

The investigators have been trying to extract information on his alleged deal with Sudipto Sen who used his press to print two dailies in Guwahati.

Sources told Assam Times, CBI finds it quite difficult to ascertain Dutta’s real deal with the Saradha boss forcing them to quiz him again and again.

“Dutta is likely to be quizzed again if need be,” said sources adding that a former cabinet minister is also likely to be quizzed again very soon.

This was for the second time CBI questioned Dutta within 24 hours.
