Saradha Group promoter Sudipta Sen and his close aide were sent to 10 days' police custody by a West Bengal court Sunday in a cheating case filed by an agent of his chit fund company.

Sen and his employee Arvind Chauhan were sent to police custody for questioning by a South 24-Parganas district court on a complaint lodged by Manik Chakrabarty, a company agent who claims to have collected money from over 3,000 investors.

In his complaint to the Baruipur police station, Chakrabarty accused Sen of cheating and defrauding the people.

A day after Sen was remanded in judicial custody by another court, he Sunday requested the judge to send him to police custody as he wanted to help in the investigation.

"Speaking for the first time in court after his arrest, Sen today (Sunday) said that he wanted to help the investigators as well as refund the investors' money," Sen's counsel Samir Das said.

"According to Sen's wishes, we did not oppose the prosecution's plea for police custody and the court sent him to 10 days' police custody," added Das.

A North 24-Paraganas court Saturday sent Sen and Chauhan to judicial custody till May 22, 23 and 31 in six different cases of alleged cheating and non-payment of salary to the employees of Saradha Group.
