Chit-fund scam: CBI quizzes depositors’ front convenor

Bhubaneswar: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) questioned Chit fund Khyatigrasta Jamakari Sangh (CKJS) joint convener Madhu Biswal for three hours on Thursday evening regarding his connection with Artha Tatwa (AT) Group at the CBI office here.

Biswal allegedly misappropriated around Rs 40 lakh of AT Group during his association with the company, said sources.

Notably, Biswal was managing the accounts of AT Group, including its bank transactions.

The sources added the CBI might again call Biswal for interrogation.

After the quizzing, Biswal said, “I want depositors to get back their money for which I have been fighting.”

He further stated, “I was sitting at the customer care of AT Group where payment was being made to depositors.”
