CBI to give supplementary charge sheet copy to Madan Mitra's lawyers

Kolkata, March 24: CBI on Tuesday said it would give a copy of the supplementary charge sheet, filed by it, to the lawyers of West Bengal Transport Minister Madan Mitra who has been arrested in connection with the Saradha chit-fund scam.

During a hearing of Mitra's bail plea by a division bench of the Calcutta High Court, the minister's lawyers told the court that they were yet to receive copies of the supplementary charge sheet filed by CBI against Mitra and statements made by him before a magistrate under Section 164 of the CrPC.
