Veteran actor and Trinamool Congress leader Mithun Chakraborty gave his resignation from the Rajya Sabha on Monday citing his health issues. Trinamool Rajya Sabha leader Derek O'Brien confirmed the news and wished the actor a speedy recovery.

Chakraborty was among several Trinamool MPs who have been grilled by the Enforcement Directorate and the Central Bureau of Investigation in connection with the multi-billion rupee Saradha chit fund scam.

Last year, Chakraborty had returned the money he had received from the scam tainted Saradha Group for hosting a TV programme.

Chakraborty, through his counsel, submitted a bank draft of Rs. 1, 19, 88, 560, to the ED.

Chakraborty became a Rajya Sabha MP in 2014, and his term was slated to end in April 2020.

He had been absent from the Rajya Sabha for long.
