Cuttack: A commission headed by Justice MM Das probing the multi-crore chit fund scam failed to trace the address of as many as 156 dubious ponzi firms in Odisha.
This was revealed during fifth-phase verification of affidavits submitted by the depositors at office of Justice MM Das here on Thursday.
The probing panel, which is verifying 2.52 lakh affidavits in fifth phase, is all set to serve notice to 486 chit fund firms in connection with the scam.
However, the correct address of 156 firms out of total 486 chit fund companies is untraceable so far.
The Commission has directed the Economic Offence Wing (EOW) of Crime Branch to provide addresses of the MD, Directors, Chairman and senior officials of those chit fund firms to serve the notice.
The similar situation had occurred earlier. Even EOW had failed to provide exact address of some chit fund firms in various phases. The Commission had issued the notice to those dubious firms through newspapers.
