" The CBI Thursday secured the custody of Sen, the Saradha promoter and East Bengal Football Club official Debabrata Sarkar, for questioning."
Kolkata, Aug 23 - Probing the multi-crore rupee Saradha scam, the CBI Saturday grilled retired IPS officer Rajat Majumdar for nearly seven hours.

Besides Majumdar, who had served as director general of the state armed police and after retirement, as security advisor for the tainted company, CBI sleuths, during the day, also interrogated scam kingpin Sudipta Sen and Amrin Ara - a former accountant of the company.

Majumdar's name cropped up after suspended Trinamool Congress Rajya Sabha member Kunal Ghosh, now behind bars, accused the former Indian Police Service officer of swindling crores of rupees in organising a cultural programme in Las Vegas in 2012.

Majumdar, who had served as a poll observer for the Trinamool in Birbhum for the panchayat election in 2013, rubbished the allegations.

All the allegations are false, Majumdar said in the morning while entering the CBI office here.

On Aug 14, CBI sleuths had raided Majumdar's residence and seized several documents.

The CBI Thursday secured the custody of Sen, the Saradha promoter and East Bengal Football Club official Debabrata Sarkar, for questioning.

While Sen has been behind bars since April 2013, Sarkar was nabbed Wednesday by the central agency.
