Siliguri (West Bengal), July 5 (ANI): West Bengal Police on Friday shifted Saradha Group chief Sudipta Sen and his deputy Debjani Mukherjee, the accused in the ponzi scam, to another jail in Siliguri district after the state government notified the formation of a special committee to carry out instant investigation.
Saradha Group chief and his deputy were produced in a West Bengal Court earlier on June 26 and remanded in police custody for 14 days.
The Saradha Chit Fund scam has robbed thousands of investors of their savings in West Bengal and Assam.
The Congress and the CPI-M have demanded a CBI enquiry into the scam. The Assam Government is also in favour of a CBI probe in the matter. (ANI)
