Supreme Courts refuses to monitor CBI probe into Saradha Scam

The Supreme Court reportedly reposed its faith in the country’s premier investigative agency claiming that they are not inclined to set up a monitoring committee to monitor the chit fund scam probe.

The apex court of the country has refused to constitute a monitoring team to review the CBI probe into the Saradha Chit-fund scam. A two-judge bench, comprising of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Sanjiv Khanna rejected the petition filed by the disgruntled investors in the Saradha Chit-fund.

Hearing on the petition filed by some private investors who had lost their savings in the chit-fund scam, the Supreme Court reposed its faith in the country’s premier investigative agency claiming that they are not inclined to set up a monitoring committee to monitor the chit fund scam probe.

Mamata Banerjee had then sat on a dharna to allegedly protect Kolkata Commissioner who is accused of destroying key evidence against the perpetrators of the Saradha Chit-fund scam.
