Kolkata: The Central Bureau of Investigation on Monday summoned Trinmool Congress national secretary and former railway minister Mukul Roy for questioning in the multi-crore Saradha chit fund scam.
Earlier in December in a huge embarrassment and setback for the Mamata Banerjee government, the CBI had arrested West Bengal Transport Minister and TMC leader Madan Mitra in the Saradha chit fund scam.
TMC leader who is in New Delhi has ensured all possible cooperation to CBI in the probe. He may appear in front of the CBI court within this week.
Responding to the development, Bhartiya Janata Party spokesperson Sidharth Nath Singh said, "This is a big step in the Sardaha Scam investigation. Mukul Roy is said to be close to Mamata Banerjee and an important member of TMC."
Three TMC leaders have been arrested by CBI in the multi-crore scam till now.
