Bhubaneswar: After nabbing over 160 people across Odisha on charges of running or helping illegal money laundering, the Economic Offence Wing (EOW) of the Crime Branch (Odisha Police) arrested two employees of Saradha Group on Thursday.

The EOW took Basudev Samal and BN Das into custody on charge of helping Saradha group chief Sudipta Sen to cheat gullible investors in Balasore district.

Samal was working as the branch manager of Saradha group's Balasore office. Das was company's liasoning officer. Though police had earlier sealed Saradha's office at Balasore and Puri towns, this was for the first time it arrested two of its employees, Crime Branch DIG Rajesh Kumar said.
