New Delhi: CBI may examine Bollywood actor and Trinamool Congress Rajya Sabha MP Mithun Chakraborty in connection with its probe in the Saradha ponzi scam as the agency has found that he was allegedly part of the promotion exercise undertaken by the promoters.

The agency sources said examination of all those concerned with the schemes, through which thousands of investors were allegedly cheated, will be undertaken by CBI in a structured manner.

The sources said since Mr. Chakraborty was part of the promotional exercise undertaken by the promoters, he will also be examined. The sources however refused to give details as to when CBI might call him for recording his statement. Mr. Chakraborty was not available for comments.

The CBI said his examination was necessary as he was the brand ambassador of a media platform floated by the group.

Sources said the investigating agency will record his statement to understand working of the group and flow of funds.

The sources have clarified that there is no allegation of any wrong doing against the actor in the scam and his testimony will only corroborate the working of the group.

They also said as of now he will only be examined as a witness in the case.

The sources said money worth some crores have been paid to the actor for his services to the company which is under scanner and his statement will help the agency to understand how the money was spent by the company.

They said the actor is likely to be called in Kolkata for recording his statement.
