Chit fund scam: Debjani distances herself from Sudipta, says he masterminded the racket
Debjani Mukherjee blamed the media for misrepresenting her relationship with Saradha Group chairman Sudipta Sen.
Kolkata: Sudipta Sen's alleged aide Debjani Mukherjee, who was arrested in connection with the West Bengal chit fund scam, distanced herself from the Saradha Group chairman through a letter that was made public by her lawyers.
Debjani in her letter, alleged that Sudipta masterminded the racket while she was merely a salaried employee who was manipulated. She also blamed the media for misrepresenting her relationship with Sudipta.
Mamata government has been facing the heat over the scam that affected lives of scores of agents and investors in the state. Opposition parties have been demanding for a CBI probe.
The letter narrates her personal account of Saradha group and her stint with Sudipta. Debjani repeatedly insists that she was a salaried person in the company.
She claimed that Sudipta took away her directorial powers from 35 out of 40 odd companies listed with Union Ministry of Corporate affairs after she raised objections about his company.
Debjani claimed it was her moral responsibility to continue with the job after the company muddled in some financial crisis late in 2012. She also claimed that she didn't receive any salary since January like any other Saradha media employee.
