Kolkata: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) accused former union minister Matang Singh’s estranged wife Manoranjana, Saradha Group chairmen Sudipta Sen and entrepreneur Shantanu Ghosh in the Saradha scam and filed a supplementary charge sheet in a city court on Monday.

In the latest charge sheet filed in the multi-crore-rupee scam, the CBI charged the trio with criminal conspiracy, cheating, criminal breach of trust and under the Prize Chits and Money Circulation Schemes (Banning) Act. The name of Nalini Chidambaram was also included in the charge sheet of Saradha scam. She was named as the one who had access to certain information on the controversial channel deal. ” Being the lawyer of Manoranjana Singh, her fee had been paid from Saradha money because of which her name came up in the list,” a CBI officer said.
