Jena will meet Gupta, who arrived here this morning, along with his associate and RTI activist Jayanta Kumar Das at 4.30 pm, the sources added.

“I will hand over whatever information I have about the money trail in the chit fund scam to the special director,” Jena told OST.

Gupta’s visit comes after Jena met with the ED chief Ranjan Katoch in New Delhi recently and impressed upon him the need for a thorough investigation into the money laundering angle in the scam.

The Odisha government has been stonewalling the ED, just as it has done in the case of the CBI probe, in parting with crucial information about the scam, sources said.
