Kolkata: A local court on Wednesday extended the judicial remand of suspended Trinamool Congress Rajya Sabha MP Kunal Ghosh, Saradha group chairman Sudipta Sen and his close associate Debjani Mukherjee till January 11 next year.
Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Arvind Mishra passed the order. The counsel for the accused trio expressed opposition when CBI said it was ready to initiate trial in the cases related to the Saradha scam.
The counsel cited CBI’s earlier deposition in court that the probe into the Saradha ponzi scam was ongoing and said that the trial could not be conducted unless the investigation was completed.
CBI had taken over the investigation in June, 2014, upon Supreme Court’s orders
