KOLKATA:The CBI probing the multi-crore Saradha chit fund scam on Wednesday submitted a supplementary chargesheet against four people, including  state minister, two TMC MPs and two sister concerns of the disgraced group.

And  the names of Transport Minister Madan Mitra, suspended TMC Rajya Sabha MP Kunal Ghosh, Saradha chief Sudipto Sen’s legal adviser Naresh Bhalodia, all behind bars and former TMC Rajya Sabha MP Srinjoy Bose, now out on bail, figured in the chargesheet.

The agency named Mitra as one of the main conspirators in the “money marketing scam. The  presiding judge of Alipore court Haradhan Mukherjee accepted the chargesheet.

The probe agency also named two companies, including a media company belonging to Ghosh.

Former DGP of West Bengal and TMC leader Rajat Majumdar, who was granted conditional bail by the Calcutta High Court on Monday, was on Wednesday released from the Alipore Central Jail.

With Srinjoy already securing bail, legal experts believe that  Mitra, Ghosh and Bhalodia too could get bail. Srinjoy was granted bail as the CBI had failed to incorporate Section 409 of the IPC in its original chargesheet.
