Kolkata: West Bengal Governor MK Narayanan on Friday sidestepped questions on whether a CBI inquiry was needed into the Saradha chit fund scam saying that inquiries were going on.
"Several inquiries are going on and the most important is how we can give some money back to the investors," Narayanan told reporters when asked whether a CBI probe was required into the scam, which has hit thousands of investors in the state.
Opposition parties have demanded a CBI inquiry into the Saradha Group alleging involvement of ruling Trinamool Congress MPs.
Asked whether he thought the Rs 500 crore relief package announced by the state government was enough to help investors, the governor said "Not enough, but it is a major effort."

Meanwhile, the Governor has called a special session of state Assembly on April 29 to discuss the chit fund scam.
