In this regard, an investor named A Kumarjit conveyed that the investors did not take any interest on the money they had invested in the Group during the Covid-19 pandemic.

However, the Group informed that they could not pay the interest for the time being and as such, have not been paying the interest till date.
He recounted that the investors were asked to submit an application if they wanted to withdraw their investments and thus, many complied with the advice.
After this, the Group tried to play “divide and rule” by arguing that some of the investments were pre mature, while others had matured.
Ihe Group continuously tried to fool the investors in this way.
Kumarjit then said that Sanasam Jackie, the chairman of Lamjingba Group never agreed to a meeting with the investors for a long time.
The chairman finally agreed to meet the investors and told them to come to the office around 1 pm on Monday.
The investors showed up at the appointed time but neither the chairman nor any functionary of the Group, who could take responsibility, showed up.
Demanding Lamjingba Group to return the invested money of the investors at the earliest, Kumarjit further demanded fixing a date for the same, regardless of whether the investments are pre-mature or have matured.
