"The ED and CBI probes will go parallel and there is no possibility of an overlap", said ED regional special director Yogesh Gupta.

For the ED it does not matter whether CBI or any other agency like SIT conducts a probe.

"The ED will primarily track the flow of funds and the persons responsible for money laundering. The scope of ED was much wider," he said.

CBI like the SIT on the other hand will investigate persons involved in the scam, Gupta said.

The Supreme Court on Friday ordered a CBI probe into the Saradha scam which had hit depositors not only in West Bengal but also in Odisha and Assam.
