While the CBI is currently probing into the multi-crore chit fund scam in Odisha, the sudden transfer of CBI SP of Bhubaneswar Manish Kumar Sinha to Patna is shrouded in mystery.

Sources in the CBI headquarters in Delhi said Sinha would be replaced by his Patna counterpart Rajiv Ranjan.

While the exact cause of Sinha’s transfer is not yet known, deputy director, CBI in Delhi office GK Goswami said the transfer is effected to safeguard the larger interest of the people of Odisha.

A young IPS officer, Sinha was posted as SP, CBI SIT in Bhubaneswar following the directive of the Supreme Court to the CBI to probe into the chit fund scam in Odisha.

Soon after taking charge, Sinha was able to dig out a series of chit fund scams in the state which had resulted in the arrest of top political leaders including the ruling MPs and MLAs.

Apart from this, a number of influential persons including Rajya Sabha member Pyari Mohan Mohapatra, Saroj Sahu, aide of chief minister Naveen Patnaik, BJD MLA Pravat Biswal, MP Rabindra Jena and senior IPS officers Satish Gajviya and Rajesh Kumar were grilled during Sinha’s tenure.

  1. Another setback to the chit fund investigation in Odisha is that Manish Kumar Sinha, IPS, who was investigating 22 chit fund companies including Artha Tatwa, Seashore, Green India etc was suddenly transferred to Bangalore on promotion.

    as per the CBI Letter No.DP/Pers.I/2015/1202/05/15/2014 dated 09.4.2015 (Office Order No.467 of 2015) Eight IPS officers were promoted and seven out of them were re-posted to their present place of posting except Manish Sinha,IPS (SIT-SP). Hence it is conspiracy by the CBI Director, SIT Chief Rajiv Singh and some influential criminals (who are involved in chit fund scam) to remove Mr. Manish Sinha from SIT. This matter will be intimated to the Honourable Supreme Court. This act of CBI proves that this helpless investigating agency is working as per the direction of Politicians and behaving like Cage Parrot.

    All most all the activists and chit fund victims are keeping a close watch on the activities of CBI and we will never spare the CBI and other investigating agencies if they do not do the investigation properly.
