Saradha Group chairman Sudipta Sen, the main accused in the multi-crore chit-fund scam, today claimed that he wanted to hand over all his assets to the court to repay ‘genuine customers’.

Sen, who is in custody on the charge of allegedly duping lakhs of investors in ponzi schemes, was represented by his counsel in the Calcutta High Court hearing PILs seeking a CBI investigation into the charges against him.

The counsel submitted before a division Bench comprising Justice Asim Banerjee and Justice M K Chaudhuri that Sen wanted his movable and immovable assets to be taken over by the court.

Sen, who has opposed a CBI investigation into the charges against him, prayed that the court evaluate and sell off his assets to repay ‘genuine customers’.

Sen also prayed for an order that all cases initiated against him in several places be heard by a single court.

The matter would come up for hearing again on Monday.
