Bhubaneswar: After four years of arresting Mir Sahiruddin, the Managing Director of chit fund firm Green Ray International Limited (GRIL), the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) today arrested his two brothers from Jaleswar area in Balasore district in connection with the ponzi scam.
The two arrested-Mir Sahimat alia Kalu and Mir Jamiruddin- were Directors of GRIL, one of the 44 chit fund companies being probed by CBI following a Supreme Court directive.
The company has allegedly duped investors of over Rs 1,000 crore in Odisha and other states and diverted the money to Dubai and Nigeria through brokers.
Acting on intelligence input, a team from CBI headquarters here led by DSP Ashok Kumar conducted a raid in Jaleswar area and arrested the two this morning.
Worth mentioning, the CBI had arrested Mir Sahiruddin from Kolkata in February, 2017, a few days after he returned to India from Bangladesh.
