The Central Bureau of Investigation has issued notices to two former ministers of Biju Janata Dal (BJD) government for their alleged involvement in the multi-crore chit fund scam.

The investigating agency has summoned BJD MLAs and former ministers Atanu Sabyasachi Nayak and Arun Sahoo for their alleged involvement with the Seashore chit fund scam.

While Sahoo was asked to depose on 28 January, Nayak was asked to appear on 30 January. However, Sahoo did not appear before the agency on Monday, said CBI sources.

BJD spokesperson Sasmit Patra said their leaders have not received any notice from CBI so far.

“We have come to know about the matter from the media. Our leaders have not received any notice from CBI so far.”

Earlier, several BJD leaders were arrested for their links with the chit fund scam. Lok Sabha MP Ramachandra Hansdah and MLAs Pravat Kumar Tripathy and Pravat Ranjan Biswal were arrested.

Seashore Group is one of the 44 ponzi companies in Odisha which came under the scanner of CBI following an order of the Supreme Court.
