ED summons Chidambaram’s wife Nalini in Saradha chit fund


New Delhi, Apr 30:  The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Monday summoned former Union Minister P. Chidambaram’s wife Nalini Chidambaram in a multi-crore Saradha chit fund scam, an official said.

The agency asked Nalini Chidambaram, a senior lawyer, to appear before its Kolkata-based office on May 7 to record her statement in connection with the case.

ED’s move comes a week after the Madras High Court dismissed a petition by her, challenging the agency’s summons to her to appear as a witness in its money laundering probe in the Saradha scam case in which several key political leaders are allegedly involved.

The ED issued the summons on September 7, 2016, as Nalini Chidambaram’s name was mentioned in Saradha scam “mastermind” Sudipta Sen’s letter to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in April 2013.

In the letter, Sen said she prepared an agreement for co-accused Manoranjana Sinh, wife of Congress leader and former Union Minister Matang Sinh, and for legal consultancy services she received over Rs 1 crore in 18 months.

The CBI in September 2014 sought some clarifications from her. She then told the media that the CBI officers wanted to know whether Sinh consulted her professionally and confirmed that she had done so.

Based on the CBI case, the ED has been investigating the money laundering allegations against the main accused and his associates.

The agency is gathering information on the flow of funds collected by the Saradha Group companies from investors and probing the payments made through Saradha Group accounts to several companies and individuals.

While Rs 12 crore was allegedly paid to Sangbad Pratidin, Anubhuti Printers of former Congress Minister from Assam, Anjan Dutta, was allegedly paid Rs 7 crore.

Matang Sinh’s companies had also received Rs 28 crore, according to the agency. His wife’s company GNN Ltd allegedly got about Rs 26 crore.

The agency has also scrutinised the sale of Ratikanta Basu’s Broadcast Worldwide for Rs 19 crore.

Names of Bollywood actor Mithun Chakraborty who allegedly received Rs 2 crore and famous painter Suvaprasanna whose company Debkripa allegedly got Rs 6.5 crore also figured in the ED investigations.


  1. Bwa-ha-ha-ha!!! An arscellent(!?) post! But where's the photo of you outdoors at the coffee shop? Or one of you in the library in your blue-butted wonder! Curtise, you are magnificent semi-unclothed and semi-semi-unclothed! Desiree is boundlessly inspiring and you have obviously been taking notes! Spendid!

  2. Using a good conditioner and keeping the ends trimmed promotes healthy hair growth. Oil scalp and massage depending on the dryness of your hair and scalp everyday or every other. Try not to perm every month unless it’s done by a professional if you must. Peace!

  4. on Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is great blog. A great read. I’ll certainly be back.

  5. eek, i know the feeling! I have suuuuch a bad back. My doctor has made me strengthen my core and do pilates, along with sleeping with a special pillow and now sleeping on my stomach, and its still bad! feel better! and PS- biofreeze works wonderfully for aches and pains! you can get a knock off at Walmart and it basically takes the pain away and feels icy cool and minty on your body!

  6. I can’t wait to see this movie, because I love Jennifer Lawrence. She has an undeniable charm about her, and she’s one of the best young actresses working today. I’m sad my local theater won’t get it until Christmas, but it’ll be worth it.

  8. Ca sa puteti in continuare sa faceti doar dv. declaratii fiscale pentru venitul din inchirieri, ar trebui ca sotia sa dea o declaratie la notar in care sa sa declare ca va cedeaza intregul venit din inchiriere. Acesta declaratie trebuie depusa la fisc odata cu declaratia fiscala.

  9. הכשלון המהותי של פרוסט\\ניקסון, לדעתי, הוא מעבר ישיר מדי מתיאטרון לקולנוע. המחזה נכתב תוך התחשבות במגבלות של במה אחת ותפאורה סטטית יחסית, וכך גם נראית הגרסה הקולנועית שכמעט ולא מסתמכת על הכלים שיש לקולנוע כדי לאפיין דמויות ומעשים. במקום זה, הסרט מאפיין את פרוסט ואת ניקסון באמצעות התנהגותם בתקופה של הראיונות, וגם כאן הוא לוקח לא מעט חופש אמנותי כדי למסגר את הדמויות כאנדרדוג ואשמאי זקן אך חביב.

  10. I received my first Birchbox this month. Opted for the Goop one. I was upset about not getting the Essie polish as well. I didn’t know they told you what came in your box after it shipped so I knew what was coming a week before it arrived. I got the Supergoop Sunscreen Serum, an illume candle, Lemon Zest Luna Bar, Jouer Lip Enhancer and Kiehl’s Rosa Artica Eye balm. I was sort of disappointed with my first box but I’m not going to give up! Everything in my box is useful though.

  16. #135 Richard what counter arguenments might that be? I mean think about it here is a guy who bought in 05, and has had his property on the market for almost a year,and cannnot sell it.Do you really think he is credible? First off I am not even sure he is believeable period but he is fun to play with.As far as you going negative equity on your properties, do not worry, we are ready.

  18. – Greetings! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  19. I love the new theme. I love the more usable comment threading.I am, however, interested in what readers think about the usability aspects. Hopefully we can come to some sort of happy consensus in terms of usability, though I know that different people may have different needs. I imagine that this might be an iterative process as we try to figure out, with our readers and commenters, how best to proceed.

  20. I think this is a great companion to the piece that Nina wrote on your blog. There are many different types of friends…and some people who will never be your friend. I totally agree with your Doc and everyone else who has commented here: You do not need to be friends with everyone. I do my best to avoid people in those situations. I never initiate a connection, and we are thrown together (ie – parties or social events), I just concentrate and socializing with other people.

  21. Heitor Polidoro disse:Um crossover que eu acho que ficou bacana e que se espalhou por várias mídias (incluindo jogos, é claro) é Alien vs Predador. A primeira história foi publicada pela Dark Horse Comic em Dark Horse Presents em 89, depois vieram jogos de computador, filmes e até card game.

  22. Aunque personalmente no era santo de mi devoción, precisamente por lo que apuntas, esa dosis de soberbia que le hacía francamente antipático, si tengo que decir que me pareció siempre un gran escritor y un magnífico periodista… del cual deberían copiar tantos y tantos mediocres, falsarios, cínicos, crápulas, falaces y advenedizos que ahora pululan por los medios de comunicación.

  23. « PS (31 août, 18h) : Je ne pensais pas que cet article décalé susciterait autant de commentaires outrés, voire injurieux. Manifestement, on a touché là une partie sensible. »Vous n’avez touché aucune partie sensible. Vous racontez simplement n’importe quoi et faites de vos fantasmes une réalité.Rien d’étonnant à ce que les gens réagissent à un tel tissu d’âneries.

  24. Lovely post, I adore your childhood home – the Arts & Crafts period is one of my favourites. That's a great photo of your mum and grandmother, how nice to have it. There's some crazy jewellery there, your mum must have been very clever. If you do find the jumpsuit, please do show us. I bet it would still fit, you lucky girl!

  25. pour des limitations de vitesse, quoique l’on pourrait s’en passer dans un pays moins latin. Mais non aux campagnes de spots télévisés outranciers qui visent un certain public mais ne l’atteignent pas. Les personnes âgées sont épouvantées (elles en parlent parfois aux médecin) alors que les jeunes s’en fichent royalement. On peut aussi s’interroger sur l’impact en terme de vies sauvées du triangle de signalisation obligatoire.

  26. Hey, just looking around some blogs, seems a pretty good platform you are using. I’m currently using WordPress for a few of my sites but looking to change a single of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it?

  27. Kystpartiet? Hva står de for? Er ikke det et Senterparti for fiskere? Nei, Venstre må tilbake til sine liberale røtter og brutalt kvitte seg med politikere som flørter med sosialistene. Venstre kan ikke være alt for alle. Venstre må være for personlig frihet og ansvar, MOT fellesskapsløsninger for alle.

  28. Merci c’est pas mal de voir ce qui se fait chez Nikon, mais c’est pas pour autant que je vais changer de crèmerie Par contre j’aimerai remplacer mon 450D et je pense sérieusement à 6D, j’espère que tu auras l’occasion de le tester pour nous !

  29. No criticamos que desaparezcan las diferencias entre licenciaturas y titulaciones, sino que criticamos que en los nuevos grados se excluya la especialización, y se deje esta para los posgrados, lo que obliga a los estudiantes a cursar posgrados (muy caros aún) para poder tener salidas al mundo laboral.Criticar que el CAP pase a ser un master no significa que estemos de acuerdo con como se desarrolla el CAP actualmente. ¿Es solución convertirlo en un master caro y que te oblige a elegir entre investigación o docencia?Gracias por las pegas!

  30. Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.|

  31. Fanstastic Article…That is really attention-grabbing, You are an overly skilled blogger. I’ve joined your rss feed and sit up for looking for more of your wonderful post. Additionally, I have shared your site in my social networks…

  32. I see someone asking how to share their authenticated sites with other Google user accounts – I as well want to do this. Having that other users re-authenticate directly with the site is unacceptable since I don’t have direct control over the site itself (I have to wait for the webmaster), hence I’m not directly controlling the ACL for this data, which needs to be the case.

  33. I love it!!! especially the part where Sandy throws out the card and eats the chocolate! hahahahaha… and of course PEPE!!!! mannn i really wish i got to be there.. especially so i could announce to everyone that i sooooo predicted this!! i’m so happy for you both – you’re a beautiful couple – inside & out!

  34. SÃ¥ fine puter da!! Sitter her for tiden og syr lappe-puter jeg ogsÃ¥. Lett Ã¥ fÃ¥ litt dilla nÃ¥r man først setter igang med sÃ¥nt;)Veeeldig misunnelig pÃ¥ den søte hekleputen….tror jeg mÃ¥ lære meg ordentlig hekling..!SÃ¥ mÃ¥ jo jeg ogsÃ¥ si, som alle de andre, at Ã¥ bruke norgesglass til nÃ¥lepute var supersmart!! SÃ¥ det er nok stor fare for at den ideen blir kopiert her i huset:)Ha en strÃ¥lende helg!!:)
