Bhubaneswar: The CBI probing into the multi-crore chit fund scam in Odisha on Monday issued a notice to BJD’s Balasore MP Rabindra Jena asking him to appear before it on January 12.
Jena has been issued a notice in connection with the Seashore Group chit fund scam, said CBI sources.
Jena had appeared before the investigating agency on December 10. It had interrogated BJD’s Balasore MP for his alleged links with Seashore Group.
This was the second time Jena appeared before CBI. The central investigating agency had questioned him in January last year.
Jena headed the ‘Supratik’ group of companies, which had lent an amount of Rs 18 crores to the Seashore group in 2010. Seashore had paid back the lion’s share of the money, but still owed Rs 1.86 crores to him, the sources said.
