MEA seeks report from CBI on Saradha's alleged terror link

Saradha: MEA seeks report from CBI
New Delhi, Oct 15: The External Affairs Ministry has sought from CBI details of its probe into Saradha chit fund scam after reports of the scam money being allegedly pumped into Bangladesh for terror activities surfaced.

Top officials said CBI has been asked to submit its report whether any such issue has cropped up during its probe. CBI sources, however, clarified that so far they have not encountered any such instance of funds being transferred to any terror group including Jamaat-e-Islami but the probe is still on and nothing conclusive can be said as of now.

They said MEA could be interested in the issue because of the news reports which are getting published in India as well as in Bangladesh.

"We are not aware of all this international terror linkages. No such indication has surfaced in our probe so far. We have not looked into that aspect. We will inform MEA about it," said an official.

The sources said they have got some of the money trail on the basis of which action is being taken by the agency but complete details of investments and fund transfers etc still being looked into.

The CBI sources further said the probe has met a stumbling block because the account books of the group have been "purposefully" removed from the offices of Saradha taking excuse of the mob attack on its offices after news of scam broke out.
