Saradha group chairman Sudipta Sen and two others were on Thursday remanded to nine days police custody in fresh cases and 14 days judicial remand in earlier cases in the alleged multi-crore Ponzi scheme scam.


Sen, along with Saradha group director Debjani Mukherjee and Arvind Singh Chouhan, who looked after the group's operations in Jharkhand, were produced before the court of additional chief judicial magistrate, Bidhannagar, AHM Rahman, who remanded them after the expiry of their 14 days police custody.

They were given nine days police custody till May 18 in fresh cases and 14 days judicial custody till May 23 in earlier cases.

The three had been booked under sections 406 (criminal breach of trust), 420 (cheating) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of IPC after they were produced in court on April 25, following their arrest from a hotel at Sonmarg in Kashmir on April 23.

Later, while being taken away from the court, Sen told reporters that he would speak after the investigation ended.

"I will speak. Wait for sometime. Let the investigation be over. I will speak," Sen said.

Sen had written a letter to CBI last month complaining of blackmail by 22 persons, including two TMC MPs.
