WB minister Madan Mitra arrested in Saradha scam

Mitra was arrested in a case relating to Saradha Realty on charges of criminal conspiracy, cheating, misappropriation of funds as well as deriving undue financial benefits from the Saradha Group, a CBI spokesman here said.

"Mitra was arrested on prima facie evidence of criminal conspiracy, cheating and misappropriation as well as deriving undue financial benefits from the Saradha group," CBI official said.

He was taken into custody after five hours of intense questioning at the Salt Lake CGO complex housing the CBI office.

Balodia had drafted the letter which Sudipto Sen had sent to the CBI, he said.

The CBI had earlier arrested two TMC MPs Kunal Ghosh and Srinjay Bose in connection with the Saradha scam.
