In a fresh twist in the Saradha chit fund scam, the main accused Sudipto Sen’s driver and assistant has pointed fingers at senior Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Mukul Roy.
Arvind Singh Chouhan told the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Tuesday that Roy and TMC MP Subhendu Adhikari met Sen before he went into hiding last year as the scam broke.
Chouhan said that he was witness to Roy and West Bengal ex-DGP Rajat Majumdar holding a meeting with Sen on April 5, 2013. Chouhan also said that he was a witness to Adhikari holding a meeting with Sen.
Chouhan was arrested along with Sen from Kashmir shortly after the scam came to light. He is currently out on bail.
The TMC, which is Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s party, has time and again denied its involvement in the scam with the CM even alleging it to be a conspiracy against her government.
The claims, however, were refuted by an arrested party MP, Kunal Ghosh who alleged that Mamata was the biggest beneficiary of the scam.
