Kolkata, Dec 18 (IANS) Enforcement Directorate on Tuesday filed its chargesheet in the multi-crore MPS chit fund scam case before a city court, naming chief of the now-defunct group, Pramatha Nath Manna, among others.
The central agency had been investigating the group’s ponzi schemes for over four years under Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
“A chargesheet against the group naming its Chairman P.N. Manna has been filed today,” an ED official said.
The group is said to have collected over Rs 2,600 crore from the depositors under collective investment schemes.
Manna, who was absconding after duping depositors, was arrested by police in 2014.
The agency also interrogated former city Mayor Sovan Chatterjee’s wife Ratna Chatterjee in relation to Nanarda sting probe on Tuesday.
