New Delhi: In the wake of an alleged fraud involving thousands of crores by Kolkata-based Saradha group, the Centre today ordered a SFIO probe into suspected misuse of the public money by various chit fund companies.
A special task force has been set up under the Serious Fraud Investigation Office (SFIO) to carry out all investigations into such companies, the Corporate Affairs Ministry said today in a statement.
The decision was taken in view of a "larger public interest involved in these cases, and concerns regarding misuse/laundering by such companies of the ill-gotten wealth and the possibility that the promoters of these companies may strip these companies," the Ministry said.
