The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Saturday said it has attached assets worth Rs 3 crore belonging to Trinamool Congress (TMC) spokesperson Kunal Ghosh, Lok Sabha MP Satabdi Roy and Debjani Mukherjee in the Saradha chit fund case.
Kunal Ghosh was the CEO of Media Group Saradha whereas TMC Lok Sabha MP Satabdi Roy was brand ambassador in Saradha. Debjani Mukherjee was the director of the Saradha Group of companies.
Till now, properties worth Rs 600 crore have been attached by the ED during their investigation under PMLA (Prevention of Money Laundering Act).
Kunal Ghosh had earlier spent 34 months in jail and was in the custody of West Bengal Police and CBI. He was granted bail on October 5, 2016.
Ghosh was suspended from the TMC in 2013 for alleged anti-party activities. He was later reinstated as the party spokesperson.
Many leaders of Trinamool Congress (TMC) are under scanner in the Saradha chit fund scam. The CBI has already summoned and questioned several TMC leaders in connection with the case.
The ED is probing the money laundering aspect of the alleged ponzi scam since April 2013.
The Saradha group allegedly cheated thousands of depositors, promising abnormally high returns on investments in its illegal schemes.
