Saradha scam: CBI grills Assam singer Sadanand Gogoi
Continuing its probe of the multi-crore-rupee Saradha scam, the CBI Sunday grilled Assam singer Sadanand Gogoi and businessman Rajesh Bajaj, who also hails from the northeastern state.
Alleged to have made a commercial for the tainted group, Gogoi, along with Bajaj, was grilled by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) sleuths for the second consecutive day.
Coming out the CBI office here, Gogoi denied having made any financial transaction with the Saradha group.
"I have not made any financial transactions with the Saradha," said Gogoi whose residence in Assam was earlier raided by the agency.
Taking over the probe in West Bengal following a Supreme Court directive, the CBI has interrogated several high profile people and arrested East Bengal Football Club official Debabrata Sarkar and Kolkata entrepreneur Sandhir Agarwal.
The CBI has also repeatedly quizzed Bapi Karim, a former confidential assistant to West Bengal Sports and Transport Minister and Trinamool Congress leader Madan Mitra.
