Kolkata: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has reportedly wrote to West Bengal director-general of police (DGP) Surajit Kar Purkayastha seeking details of a bunch of documents related to the probe conducted by the state police in the chit fund scams.

Launching its probe in the Ponzi scheme default cases, the Central agency earlier found that key documents relating to six chit fund firms have gone missing.

The list of firms included Saradha Group and Rose Valley Group.

Unable to get those documents, the CBI earlier asked for them from the state police as various complaints against different firms were lodged at various police stations in the state and the state police was the first to investigate into them. According to sources, the CBI wanted to know from the state DGP about those documents.

During the day, the CBI informed that Mr Purkayastha was not served summons in the chit fund scam in wake some media reports. CBI spokesperson Abhishek Dayal said that neither any notice was sent to Mr Purakayastha nor he was asked to appear before the agency.
