New Delhi: CBI plans to question ousted Trinamool Congress leader Mukul Roy again in connection with the Saradha scam.
At his last interrogation in January, Roy had told CBI that 'he had done nothing wrong'.
As quoted by TOI, a senior officer said, "Our investigations have suggested that Mukul Roy went to Saradha group meetings as he was directed to. We need some more clarifications from him so he will be called again soon.
According to top sources Roy attended Saradha group meetings at 'someone's instances'.
During his last questioning, Roy was asked about his meeting with Sudipta Sen before the latter fled the state. He was also asked about his association with the Saradha group and about claims made by Kunal Ghosh and another leader, Asif Khan, that he was a beneficiary of the scam.
The CBI is all set to file a fresh charge-sheet in the Saradha scam. Based on available evidence on the 'larger conspiracy', CBI will soon decide whether Roy should be charge-sheeted in the case or not. CBI has filed two charge-sheets in connection with the Rs 2,500 crore Ponzi scandals in which it named TMC biggies including Madan Mitra, former Rajya Sabha MP Kunal Ghosh, Srinjoy Bose and Saradha group chief Sudipta Sen among others.
In the recent development CBI will also take custody of Rose Valley group chairman Gautam Kundu from the Enforcement Directorate.
The ED had arrested Kundu last week in connection with its money laundering probe into the Rs 15,000 crore scandals.
