CBI grills former cop in Saradha scam case

Probing the multi-crore Saradha scam, the CBI on Saturday grilled retired IPS officer Rajat Majumdar for nearly seven hours.

Besides Majumdar, who had served as director-general of the state armed police and after retirement, as security advisor for the tainted company, CBI sleuths, during the day, also interrogated scam kingpin Sudipta Sen and Amrin Ara—a former accountant of the company. 

Majumdar’s name cropped up after suspended Trinamool Congress Rajya Sabha member Kunal Ghosh, now behind bars, accused the former Indian Police Service officer of swindling crores of rupees in organising a cultural programme in Las Vegas in 2012.
