Saradha's seventh attachment order in 10 days: ED

 The Enforcement Directorate, probing the money trail of multi-crore Saradha chit fund scam, would issue the seventh attachment order within 10 days, an official of the agency said.



Kolkata: The Enforcement Directorate, probing the money trail of multi-crore Saradha chit fund scam, would issue the seventh attachment order within 10 days, an official of the agency said.

"We are going to issue a big attachment order in 10 days time," the official told PTI adding, the deed value of the property would come to around Rs 250 crore.

Located in Kolkata, the property is multi-layered in nature, the official said.

Till date, the agency has attached three properties located in the city, two in Bhubaneswar and one in Guwahati.

The official said the total market value of the six attached properties was Rs 500 crore.

To a query, he said the ED would prefer to file its complaint once the CBI, also probing the scam, filed its final chargesheet before the court.

"We expected that the CBI will file the main chargesheet by July itself. But it did not happen so far. We will have to wait till then," the official said.

Meanwhile, the agency has summoned Trinamool Congress Lok Sabha MP Shatabdi Roy on July 29 in this connection.

Another Trinamool MP and actor Mithun Chakrabarty had submitted Rs 1.20 crore to the ED net of tax, an amount equivalent to what he had taken from the Saradha group.

To a query, he said there is no system of compounding of offences under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act.
