New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has denies sending summons to Nalini Chidambaram, the wife of former finance minister P Chidambaram, in connection with the Saradha chit fund scam case.
Earlier this morning, there were reports doing the rounds that the central probe agency has issued summons to Nalini asking her to be present at CBI office in Kolkata on March 10.
The CBI had named Nalini in the sixth supplementary chargesheet filed in the scam. Nalini was named neither as witness nor accused, but as one privy to certain information on the controversial channel deal.
The CBI said it might look into the information she was privy to "at a later stage".
Nalini's name first cropped up in the purported letter from Saradha boss Sudipta Sen to CBI in April 2013, where it was claimed that she had been paid from Saradha accounts.
