KOLKATA: A city court today remanded multi-crore chit fund scam accused Sudipta Sen and his son Subhojit Sen to 14 days' judicial custody in connection with money laundering cases lodged by the Enforcement Directorate.

Judge B N Bhaduri of City Sessions Court here, after hearing lawyers of both the accused and the ED, granted judicial custody of Sudipta and Subhojit till June 12.

Appearing for Subhojit, counsel Naresh Bhalotia prayed for his bail claiming that his name was not in the charge-sheet filed by the ED in connection with the six cases of money laundering.

He also claimed that Subhojit had been in custody for 44 days, but the ED was not questioning him in jail and as such he be enlarged on bail.

ED lawyers Rajib Mukherjee and Abhijit Bhadra opposed the bail prayer and submitted that with a lot of investigation pending, a bail to the accused at this juncture would be harmful to the cases.

Sudipta Sen, Saradha Group chief, however, did not pray for bail in the cases.
