CBI steps up Saradha probe

CBI is believed to have gathered more and more stunning revelations on the Saradha scam when the investigation team grilled three employees of the chit fund on Tuesday.

The CBI team set up to probe the scam questioned the trio at its Kolkata based office for several hours. They would be arrested if required.

According to sources, their statements have further confirmed Sudipto Sen’s alleged deal with three political leaders apart from a channel head, former senior police officer and a circle of businessmen.

It is expected to help the CBI question “some influential persons” very soon.

CBI has already grilled singer Sadananda Gogoi, businessman Rajesh Bajaj and Monoranjana Singh for their alleged links with the Saradha Group chief. But their statements were not sufficient and that more revelations were required to unearth the truth.
