''Shadow'' film Director Shamsher Alam, was allegedly involved in the scam as well the SP said.
Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Pramod Kumar Panda, entrusted with the investigation of the scam, told newsmen here that Nasir Khan was also one of the directors of Fine India Sales but had resigned from the company.
''The investigations have revealed that Khan has allegedly siphoned off public deposit and invested the money in his entertainment company, '' the DSP said.
Mr Panda said, '' We need further investigation and will consult the Law department before arriving on any conclusion on the involvement of the Bollywood actor. The Inspector General and the Superintendent of Police of the Crime Branch were monitoring the development.'' Police said Rs 191 crore belonging to six companies had been frozen by the Crime Branch till date in connection with the chit fund scam.
Some of the companies, allegedly involved in the scam, had filed cases in the High Court but ''We will ensure that the money go back to the investors,'' Mr Panda said.
The Orissa crime branch began probe in July this year on the multilevel marketing scheme following a request from Balasore Superintendent of Police Rekha Lohani after media reported the scam, alleging fraudulent operations of companies operating under different names.
The probe had so far revealed that the root of scam had stretched up to Mumbai from Kanpur.
The Crime Branch maintained that investigation would take another six months to complete the scam.
So far the Crime Branch had examined 250 people in connection with the scam and refused to divulge their names.
It might be noted that proprietor Saroj Samant of 'Dream Achievers', one of six companies involved in the chit fund, was arrested earlier.
The SP said five Banks namely the Axis, the ICICI, HDFC, Canara Bank and SBI, besides YES Bank had been cautioned not to entertain such transaction in future.
The Crime Branch had so far frozen Rs 191 crore deposited in these Banks collected from the chit fund scam, she said.
