Shocking: Bollywood actor, TMC MP Mithun Chakraborty's name surfaces in Saradha scam, gets ED summon

Mithun Chakraborty
Kolkata, June 18: Everyone will be shocked to know that now the name of veteran Bollywood actor Mithun Chakraborty, who has been elected as a Trinamool Congress (TMC) MP in Lok Sabha, has been surfaced in the infamous Saradha scam.

According to sources, the main accused in the case -- Sudipta Sen, in of his letter, had mentioned Mithun's name. The Bollywood actor reportedly had received 70 lakh per month from the group which brought lakh of people in West Bengal on roads with chit fund scam.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED), which has been investigating the case, summoned Mithun. It has been informed that he will be questioned regarding his alleged connection with Sen and his company. Sources also informed that he was supposed to get a cheque of Rs 2 crore from the company.

However, Mithun overruled all speculations regarding his alleged connection in the scam saying that he was a paid employee who used to work with Saradha Group. He also claimed that he did not have connection with the scam.

Meanwhile, another TMC MP, a Tollywood actress, Shatabdi Roy claimed that she did not receive any summon from the ED in connection with the Saradha scam. However, she clarified that she was the ambassador of the company but was not aware of any goof-ups in the company.

It might be a major setback for Trinamool Congress (TMC) supremo and the CM of the state -- Mamata Banerjee if her two MPs names surfaced in the scam. Despite her objection, the case has been handed over to CBI. The investigative agency has already begun interrogating Sen and other accused in the case.
