CBI may examine Bollywood actor and Trinamool Congress Rajya Sabha MP Mithun Chakraborty in connection with its probe in the Saradha ponzi scam as the agency has found that he was allegedly part of the promotion exercise undertaken by the promoters.

The agency sources said examination of all those concerned with the schemes, through which thousands of investors were allegedly cheated, will be undertaken by CBI in a structured manner.

The sources said since Chakraborty was part of the promotional exercise undertaken by the promoters, he will also be examined. The sources however refused to give details as to when CBI might call him for recording his statement.

Chakraborty did not respond to SMS seeking his reaction.

They said Mithun’s examination was necessary as he was the brand ambassador of a media platform floated by the group.

Sources said the investigating agency will record his statement to understand working of the group and flow of funds.

The sources said money worth some crores have been paid to the actor for his services to the company which is under scanner and his statement will help the agency to understand how the money was spent by the company.
