The Calcutta High Court has granted bail to the accused, Debjani Mukherjee, in relation to all her cases in the Saradha chit fund Scam in West Bengal on Saturday.
However, Debjani has multiple cases registered against her in the states of Jharkhand and Odisha in connection with the same case. Since she hasn’t got bail in the other cases, she is still lodged in the Alipore Women’s Correctional Home in Kolkata as of now.
Debjani, who was the director in Saradha Group of companies, is a co-accused with its promoter Sudipto Sen. The duo was arrested from Sonmarg in Kashmir in 2013.
In the month of April, Debjani and TMC leaders including spokesperson Kunal Ghosh and MP Satabdi Roy’s assets worth Rs 3 Crores were attached by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in the money laundering case.
