Bhubaneswar, Nov 1:

The CBI investigating the multi-thousand crore chit fund scam in the country today filed its charge sheet against former Youth Congress (YC), Odisha unit president Rajat Choudhury for his alleged complicity in the Artha Tatwa (AT) Group scam.


The central investigating agency filed the charge sheet against Choudhury at the Special CBI Court here today.

Choudhury was arrested by the CBI on July 4 this year for his alleged links with Ponzi firm AT Group.

He was suspended from the Youth Congress following disclosure of his links with AT Group.

The investigating agency also filed its charge sheet against Md Haniff, a former director of AT Group.

Notably, the former Youth Congress president had come under the scanner of the agency in 2014 for a land deal involving Rs 94 lakh.

One Mitu Mohanty had allegedly obtained a plot of land from AT Group which is worth Rs 94.77 lakh.

Mitu had allegedly taken the possession of the plot without paying a single paisa to the AT Group for the same.

Choudhury had acted as a mediator in the transaction.
