Kolkata: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) probing the money trail of Saradha ponzi scam, has summoned industrialist Harsh Neotia and painter Shuvaprasanna for interrogation.

Both Neotia and the painter would be subject to interrogations by ED officials for the second time in connection with the scam.

According to ED sources, they would be asked about the details of financial transactions with Sudipto Sen, the jailed boss of the Sarada Chit Fund company.

The agency had earlier questioned the painter, considered close to the ruling Trinamool Congress, in connection with the sale of his shares in a TV channel to Sen.

ED had also frozen two bank accounts of the painter earlier. But he was asked to appear again as the ED officials had spotted some inconsistency in his statements made.

Shuvaprasanna did not turn up and instead sent a chartered accountant with the documents which ED had sought.

Neotia had been asked to depose on March 27 before ED.
