Cuttack, Dec 28:

Members of a self-help group (SHG) in Odisha’s Cuttack city today alleged deposition of black money in their Jan Dhan accounts and lodged an FIR with Jagatpur police.


According to reports, 13 members of Tulasi SHG in Jagatpur area had opened Jan Dhan accounts in State Bank of India’s Gopinathpur branch here by depositing Rs 100 through Swayamshree finance company’s two staff– Rudra Swain and Rashmi Ranjan Das.
