Bhubaneswar, Nov 24:
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probing the multi-crore rupee chit fund scam in Odisha has intensified its investigation with seeking details of vehicle passes issued to legislators and ministers visiting the Assembly during 2010 to 2013.
As per reports, Assembly secretary Amiya Kumar Sarangi has handed over a detailed report of vehicle passes issued to the MLAs and ministers for four years between 2010 and 2013 as sought by the central investigating agency.
In a related development, the CBI has transferred investigating officer (IO) probing the Seashore chit fund scam. The IO investigating the Nabadiganta Capital Services ponzi scam has been given the additional following which political tittle-tattle has gained steam ahead of BJP National President Amit Shah’s Odisha visit on Friday.
It’s rumored that the BJP-led government at the Centre has launched its weapon before forthcoming rural elections.
It was alleged that some ruling party MLAs were gifted luxurious car by ponzi firms. The investigating agency might have sniffed the nexus between political heavyweights and chit fund company owners.
Notably, the CBI had written a letter to secretariat seeking the list of vehicles the MLAs were using in those four years and whether they were using official or personal car, including who have changed their cars.
