Chit fund scam: ED Spl Director in Odisha for probe

Bhubaneswar, October 10: Enforcement Directorate Special Director Yogesh Gupta on Friday reached in Bhubaneswar to start the probe into the mega chit fund scam under Prevention of Money Laundering Act, while the CBI is investigating the case under IPC.

Source said, Gupta will also hold discussion with petitioner Alok Jena, on whose petition the Supreme Court has directed the CBI probe into the scam. 

As per SC direction the two central agencies, Enforcement Directorate and Central Bureau of Investigation, would coordinate with each other while probing the multi-crore chit fund scam independently.

Both of them would share vital information with each other, although the ED and the CBI were probing the scam under two different legislations.
