The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has summoned Trinamool Congress MP Satabdi Roy in connection with the probe in the Saradha chit fund scam, an agency source said on Monday.

“Satabdi Roy has been summoned for questioning over the Saradha case on July 29,” the ED source told IANS.

ED was also preparing the seventh attachment order of assets in the ongoing case, the source said.

Asked over the valuation of the seventh attachment, the source said: “It is still in process and valuations are being done. At this stage, it is not possible to tell the exact valuation of the attachment”.

Until now, ED has attached six properties of ponzi firm Saradha which is valued at Rs 500 crore. The forthcoming attachment is stated to be of considerable monetary value.

It has been alleged that Satabdi Roy was for some time the brand ambassador of Saradha.

Another actor turned politician and Trinamool MP Mithun Chakrabarty has already submitted Rs 1.20 crore – the amount he had taken from the ponzi company for brand endorsement – to the ED.
