The Supreme Court Monday refused to monitor the ongoing CBI investigation into the Saradha chit fund scam in West Bengal.
A two-judge bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Sanjiv Khanna did not allow the application filed by some investors that despite the top court's 2013 order directing the CBI to probe the chit fund scam, the investigation has not attained finality.

Earlier, the top court in 2013 had transferred the probe into the scam to the CBI.
