Former Union Minister Matang Sinh arrested by CBI in Saradha Chit Fund Scam


The CBI on Saturday arrested former Congress minister and MP, Matang Sinh in connection with the Saradha scam. The arrest came after it had been found that he had some alleged business dealings with the Saradha group.

‎CBI sources say that further to raid conducted by them at Sinh’s office incriminating documents were found and on investigation it was found he had some dealings with Saradha mastermind Sudipta Sen.

Sources said Sinh was earlier questioned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) sleuths in New Delhi and his statement recorded under the provisions of Prevention of Money Laundering Act. On Saturday evening, high drama prevailed as Sinh along with his personal assistant suddenly attempted to come out of the CBI office and speak to the waiting media outside. But the duo was barred from doing so by CBI sleuths. Even senior CBI officials stepped out of their rooms and stopped a much agitated Sinh and his employee Swati Sardana.
