Kunal challenges TMC to form internal probe panel on Saradha scam

Kolkata, Sept 10 (IBNS) Suspended Trinamool Congress (TMC) MP Kunal Ghosh on Wednesday challenged the party to form an internal probe panel over the multi-crore Saradha chit fund scam.
He asked the party to form the panel within 72 hours.
 
In a letter  read out to the media by his counsel, the suspended MP said: "I am demanding the party to form an organisational probe commission within 72 hours."
 
He said he will not issue any statement during the '72 hours'.
 
Ghosh has accused West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee of having benefitted the most from the multi-crore Saradha chit fund scam.
 
Taking the investigation ahead, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Wednesday interrogated Trinamool Congress’ Rajya Sabha MP Srinjoy Bose in connection to the multi-crore Saradha chit fund scam.
 
According to media reports, the Special Crime branch of CBI on Wednesday quizzed Srinjoy Bose in connection with the multi-crore Saradha ponzi scam.
 
Bose, who owns the popular Bengali daily ‘Pratidin’, once employed Kunal Ghosh as the editor of the newspaper.
 
Ghosh is currently in prison for his alleged involvement in Saradha scam.
 
Not only that, Srinjoy also heads Kolkata’s century-old iconic Mohun Bagan Athletic Club.
 
The club’s foremost rival East Bengal Club official Debabrata Biswas was last month arrested by CBI in relation to Saradha ponzi scam.
 
Apart from Debabrata, two others were till date arrested by CBI in this multi-crore scam, one of them being Kolkata-based businessman Sandhir Agarwal.
 
On Tuesday the investigating agency arrested former DGP of West Bengal Rajat Majumdar.
 
Majumdar is said to have close links to Saradha Group CMD Sudipta Sen, who is currently in jail.
 
Majumdar, who had worked as Director General (Armed Police) in West Bengal, was believed to be associated with the Saradha Group, which is caught in the chit fund scam worth crores of rupees belonging to the investors.
 
Majumdar was being treated in a government hospital after he complained of chest pain immediately after his arrest on Tuesday night.
 
He was admitted in the ICU and several tests were conducted on him.
 
The Saradha Group that went bust last year left lakhs of depositors in a fix.  
 
Saradha Group chief Sudipta Sen and Saradha Group director Debjani Mukherjee were arrested in April 2013 from Jammu and Kashmir.
 
He was absconding since Saradha Group collapsed.
 
The duo is now in jail in the ponzi scam. Sen had claimed that he was blackmailed and used by politicians mainly from Banerjee's Trinamool Congress.
