Mithun’s ‘return gift’ to ED on birthday: Saradha scam


Kolkata: Mithun Chakraborty might have different plans to celebrate his birthday. On the morning of his birthday on June 16, it is heard that, Mithun’s lawyer made his way to the ED office in Kolkata to return the bank draft which was handed over to the Disco Dancer of Bollywood in order to become the brand ambassador of Saradha. Mithun was approached along with Shatabdi Ray, who is now the MP of Birbhum to be the face of the Saradha group in West Bengal. According to sources, Mithun was also handed over a draft of Rs 1 crore 88 thousand 560. But as time passed, Saradha became a chitfund and eventually Sudipto Sen and the others who facilitated from the group were pulled up by the ED and CBI officers and were arrested.

A few days ago, Kunal Ghosh, the suspended MP of TMC, who is behind the bars in connection to the Saradha chitgate probe, brought in instance of the Maggi row and said that if an FIR is lodged against Amitabh, Madhuri Dixit and Preity Zinta at the Muzaffarpur Court for promoting Maggi and being the brand ambasador of the brand, Mithun Chakrabaorty and Birbhum MP Shatabdi Roy should also be brought into light by the police as they were the brand ambassadors of Saradha. Following the incident, Mithun’s lawyer appeared before the ED office on Tuesday and is said to have made a move to return the draft that was accepted by the ‘Mahaguru’ Mithun Chakraborty of the Bengali silver screen.
