Trinamool Congress MP Shatabdi Roy has returned Rs 30.64 lakh to the Enforcement Directorate (ED) which she had received from Saradha Group as the brand ambassador. According to a report in The Indian Express, Roy handed a bank draft to ED officials on Monday.
“Yes, I have sent the money,” Roy, who represents Birbhum constituency in the Lok Sabha, told reporters after the bank draft was delivered through a messenger.
The development comes almost a month after Roy in a written communication to the ED said that she was willing to return the amount which she had earned from the group for being the brand ambassador. The ED had interrogated Roy multiple times in connection with the scam.
