Saradha scam: Judicial remand of accused extended till Jan 11

Kolkata : A Kolkata court had yesterday extended the judicial remand of suspended Trinamool Congress Rajya Sabha MP Kunal Ghosh, Saradha group chairman Sudipta Sen and his close associate Debjani Mukherjee in the cases related to the Saradha scam.

Passing the order, Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Arvind Mishra said that judicial remand of leaders have been extended till January 11 next year

The counsel for the accused trio expressed opposition when the CBI said that it was ready to initiate trial in the cases related to the Saradha scam.

The counsel cited CBI’s earlier deposition in court that the probe into the Saradha ponzi scam is ongoing and said that the trial could not be conducted unless the investigation is completed. The CBI had taken over the investigation in June, 2014, upon Supreme Court’s orders.
