Saradha Scam: CBI to Interrogate Madan Mitra Again


Kolkata: Alipore court said on Monday, that based on Central Detective Bureau’s demand, CBI will again interrogate Sarada scam accused Madan Mitra in Jail. According to the court sources, they are expecting to complete the interrogation before 31st December.

Earlier West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday extended her support to jailed former state transport minster Madan Mitra who is an accused in the multi-crore Saradha scam and said she believed his innocence. Mamata said, “I believe Madan Mitra is not involved in the scam and has been falsely implicated.”

However, the sudden change in Mamata’s overture has raised eyebrows as she had earlier kept mum on the Madan issue. Mamata had earlier commented that a party cannot be blamed for a crime committed by an individual indirectly hitting at Madan Mitra and other Saradha scam accused.
