The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Wednesday filed a supplementary charge sheet in the multi-crore Saradha scam.

The charge-sheet, submitted at the Alipore Court, has named the State Transport and Sports Minister Madan Mitra; former Trinamool Congress MP Srinjoy Bose; suspended party MP Kunal Ghosh; and Naresh Balodia of the Saradha Group.

Apart from naming these persons, three companies, namely, Strategy Media, Sangbad Pratidin and Bengal Media, also feature there.  

According to a CBI spokesperson, the charge sheet was filed for offences under sections 120B (punishment of criminal conspiracy), 420 (cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property), 409 (criminal breach of trust by public servant) of IPC and Section 4 and 6 of Prize, Chits and Money Circulation (Banning) Act of 1978.

This (supplementary charge sheet) incidentally is the third one filed by CBI. The first was submitted in October last year; while, the second one was filed in November. 

Amongst the persons named, Srinjoy Bose has been released under conditional bail, while the others – Madan Mitra, Kunal Ghosh and Naresh Balodia – are still under judicial custody.
