Trinamool Congress MP and actor Mithun Chakraborty on Tuesday surrendered Rs. 1.2 crores, which he had received from the now-defunct chit fund firm Saradha Group, to the officials of the Enforcement Directorate (ED).
The veteran Bollywood actor was last month questioned by the ED in connection with the multi-crore Saradha chit fund scam.
During the questioning, the actor had assured the agency that he would soon return the amount given to him by the said firm.
According to media reports, the TMC MP was questioned at the fortified guest house of a central police organisation where his statement was recorded under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
During the recording of statement, Chakraborty reportedly provided the agency sleuths with a number of DVDs, CDs and scripts that he had got as part of being the brand ambassador of the Saradha Group.
