Bhubaneswar: CBI, which is probing the Odisha mega chit fund scam, on Friday filed a chargesheet against Real Alliance Estates Private Limited, a Ponzi firm, in the CBI special court here. CBI is at present probing the scams of 44 companies.
Charge-sheets have been filed against the company's directors Nikhil Patnaik and Laxminarayan Satnami, said a CBI officer. CBI, however, has not arrested anyone from the company.
The chargesheet said the company duped hundreds of depositors of nearly Rs 1.2 crore by promising them hefty returns.
CBI sources said the company's operations were limited to Odisha. Most of the investors were from Jharsuguda and Sambalpur, CBI sources said.
The central probe agency denied the involvement of any politicians or high-profile people in the scam involving Real Alliance.
