Saradha: ED seals bank accounts of 2 WB football clubs

India Blooms News Service | | 30 Sep 2014, 06:10 pm
Kolkata, Sept 30 (IBNS): The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Tuesday froze the bank accounts of two prominent football clubs in West Bengal-Mohun Bagan and East Bengal-in connection with the multicrore Saradha chit fund scam.

The ED is also likely to act against another two - Bhowanipore and Kalighat - soon, reports said.

According to reports, all these banks are financed by Saradha.

The Saradha Group that went bust last year left lakhs of depositors in a fix. 

Saradha Group chief Sudipta Sen and Saradha Group director Debjani Mukherjee were arrested in April 2013 from Jammu and Kashmir.

He was absconding since Saradha Group collapsed.

The duo is now in jail in the ponzi scam. Sen had claimed that he was blackmailed and used by politicians mainly from Banerjee's Trinamool Congress.
