NEW DELHI, Oct 15 � The External Affairs Ministry has sought from the CBI details of its probe into the Saradha chit fund scam after reports of the scam money being allegedly pumped into Bangladesh for terror activities surfaced, reports PTI.

Top officials said the CBI has been asked to submit its report whether any such issue has cropped up during its probe.

CBI sources, however, clarified that so far they have not encountered any such instance of funds being transferred to any terror group including the Jamaat-e-Islami, but the probe is still on and nothing conclusive can be said as of now.

They said the MEA could be interested in the issue because of the news reports which are getting published in India as well as in Bangladesh.

�We are not aware of all those international terror linkages. No such indication has surfaced in our probe so far. We have not looked into that aspect. We will inform the MEA about it,� said an official.

The sources said they have got some of the money trail on the basis of which action is being taken by the agency, but complete details of investments and fund transfers, etc., are still being looked into.

The CBI sources further said that the probe has met a stumbling block because the account books of the group have been �purposefully� removed from the offices of the Saradha, taking excuse of the mob attack on its offices after news of the scam broke out.
