Bhubaneswar, Jan 9:
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), probing into the mega chit fund scam, today issued notice to BJD Balasore MP Rabindra Jena asking him to appear before it on January 12 in connection with the Seashore Group chit fund scam.
Jena had earlier presented himself before the Central investigating agency on December 10 after being summoned and was questioned for around seven hours over his alleged links with the Seashore Group.
As per sources close to the MP, Jena headed the ‘Supratik’ group of companies, which had lent an amount of Rs 18 crores to the Seashore group in 2010. Seashore had paid back the lion’s share of the money, but still owed Rs 1.86 crores to him, the sources said.
