Odisha chit fund scam: Minister on CBI scanner

Bhubaneswar, April 6 (IANS) An aide of Odisha’s Food Supplies and Consumer Welfare Minister Sanjay Dasburma on Wednesday submitted documents relating to a vehicle owned by the minister to the CBI which is inquiring into the multi-crore-rupee chit fund scam in the state.

Gourang Sahu, representative of the minister, submitted the documents to the CBI on allegations of taking the car from the Artha Tatwa chit fund company.

The CBI had issued notice to the minister on April 4 to submit documents relating to the vehicle.

Congress leader Lalatendu Bidyadhar Mohapatra had alleged that the vehicle was gifted by Artha Tatwa chief Pradeep Sethi, who is in jail for duping thousands of depositors.

The CBI is inquiring into the chit fund scam of 44 companies in the state following directions of the Supreme Court.
