Kolkata: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) Monday quizzed three East Bengal club officials, including general secretary Kalyan Majumdar, in conneciton with the multi-crore rupee Saradha chit fund scam.

Majumdar, along with club assistant general secretary Shanti Ranjan Dasgupta and accountant Tapan Das, arrived at the ED office located within the Central Government Office complex in the satellite township of Salt Lake.

East Bengal had inked a sponsorship deal with the Saradha Group some years ago.

The ED, a specialised financial investigation agency under the union finance ministry, is looking into the money trail of the scam, which is said to have affected 12 lakh investors in West Bengal.

The Central Bureau of Investigation, which is probing the scam following a Supreme Court directive, last month arrested East Bengal official Debabrata Sarkar.
