Kolkata: Sudipta Sen, Saradha group chairman accused of duping lakhs of investors, has allegedly swindled 2500 of his employees of their provident fund money, according to sources.
Sources said that the amount never got deposited in their respective PF accounts. A team of ED officials from Kolkata have started looking at the financial trail and the use of money. ED officials are also looking into Sudipta Sen's bank accounts, sources said.
