TURA, May 24: The two chit fund companies - Jeevan Suraksha and Saradha group - that saw major investments from small and medium range investors have been convicted of major fraud and the heads of both have been arrested and are now doing jail time. However, though their duplicitous ways have made news everywhere, very little headway has been made into trying to return the money the people of different states invested into these chit funds. For now though, the people have been left to rue the lack of transparency in the whole process of dissolution of assets and their distribution.
