Money Apr 24, 2013
Saradha Group chief Sudipta Sen has sent an 18-page letter to the CBI alleging that several top politicians and officials in the state blackmailed him for two years.
In a letter dated 6 April, 2013, Sen threatened to commit suicide and wrote that he "...cannot live in a society where people call me cheat or fraud or use slang against me," since unscrupulous people had collected money from the public in his name.
Sen not only described his close links with two Trinamool Congress Rajya Sabha members, but also listed 22 persons who "used him" to make money.
