Tags: News
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) today questioned yesteryear actor Aparna Sen in connection with its probe in the Saradha chit fund scam case.

The award-winning actor and director, sources said, was summoned to elicit information about the media and communications operations of the scam-hit group headed by Sudipta Sen.

"We would be recording her statement under the provisions of money laundering laws. Sen has been associated with the group through a magazine that was published earlier," they said.

She arrived at the ED office in Salt Lake area here at 11 AM, they said.

The ED, which is probing the case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), is also expected to confront Sen with some documents they seized during the investigation earlier.

The agency is also expected to question a senior minister of the West Bengal government in this regard today or tomorrow.
