CBI denies sending summons to P Chidambaram's wife Nalini in Saradha scam case

New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Friday, rejected media reports that it had issued summons to former finance minister P Chidambaram's wife Nalini in connection with the Saradha chit fund scam.

As per ANI, the CBI HQ denied that it has sent summons to the Chennai-based lawyer.

Nalini, along with estranged wife of former Union minister Matang Sinh, Manoranjana Sinh, Saradha group Chairman Sudipta Sen and businessman Santanu Ghosh was named in the supplementary chargesheet filed by the investigating agency in January this year.

Interestingly, Chidambaram has been named neither as a witness nor accused, but as someone who knew about the controversial deal between Matang's company GNN India and Saradha group.

A 2014 PTI report had quoted sources as saying that Sudipta Sen, had mentioned about hiring Nalini as a lawyer at the request of Manoranjana Sinh.

Sen claimed that Rs one crore had been paid to Nalini as her legal fee by the Saradha group. Nalini represented Manoranjana and, therefore, was asked to offer her professional advice in her negotiations with Sen in connection with plans by the group to acquire a TV channel in the northeast.
