Kolkata, Nov 1 (IANS) The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Wednesday said it has filed a charge sheet against the chairman and directors of two Kolkata-based private companies in a chit fund fraud case of Rs 335 crore.

The charge sheet has been filed before the Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate of South 24 Pargana’s Baruipur.
