Saradha scam: CBI names former minister Matang Sinh in charge sheet

In a supplementary charge sheet filed in a court here, the CBI also named Shibnarayan Das -- an advisor of Saradha chief and scam kingpin Sudipta Sen.

"Sinh and his 4 companies -- NE multimedia, NE Television, Positive Radio and Impulse Production -- have been charged under various sections including cheating and conspiracy," a CBI officer said.

"Shibnarayan Das, one of the original conspirators, has also been charged with criminal conspiracy, cheating, criminal breach of trust by public servant under the Prize Chits & Money Circulation (Banning) Act," added the officer.

Sinh, a former minister of state for parliamentary affairs in the P.V. Narasimha Rao government (1991-96), was arrested on January 31 by the CBI.

Sudipta Sen, now behind bars, in a letter to the CBI, had accused Sinh of cheating him of Rs.28 crore.
