Kolkata, Aug 2 (IANS) The Enforcement Directorate on Friday quizzed noted Bengali artist Subhaprasanna in connection with the multi-crore Saradha chit fund scam case, an official said.
Subhaprasanna reached ED’s Kolkata office in the CGO Complex on Friday morning.
The artist, known to be close to West Bengal’s ruling party Trinamool Congress, was interrogated by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for four hours in the same case earlier this month.
According to ED sources, Subhaprasanna was quizzed regarding certain financial transactions done with the Saradha Group through his bank account with regard to buying a television channel.
The CBI and the ED, which are probing the ponzi scam, has interrogated a number of Trinamool Congress leaders and close aides of the party in the last two months.
Former Trinamool Congress MP Dinesh Trivedi was interrogated by the CBI in the Saradha case earlier this week.
