Bengal Minister Arrested Day After Rs 20 Crore Cash Found At Aide’s Home


Partha Chatterjee was arrested after round 26 hours of questioning.

New Delhi:

West Bengal Minister Partha Chatterjee his shut aide was immediately arrested by the Enforcement Directorate in reference to a cash laundering case linked to the alleged instructor recruitment rip-off within the state. The arrest comes hours after Rs 20 crore was recovered from minister’s aide Arpita Mukherjee.

The probe company, which investigates monetary crimes, has received the minister’s custody for 2 days.

The Trinamool chief was questioned all through the evening following the restoration of the money. In the course of the questioning, Mr Chatterjee didn’t co-operate with the investigators on account of which he was arrested, official sources informed NDTV.

“Partha Chatterjee was arrested after in a single day interrogation. Throughout questioning, Mr Chatterjee complained of uneasiness following which his well being was examined by two docs introduced by the investigators. The questioning resumed after the docs gave a go-ahead,” an official supply informed NDTV.

At present, industries and commerce minister, Mr Chatterjee held the training portfolio when the alleged rip-off was pulled off.

The Trinamool Congress mentioned it’s protecting a “shut watch” on the scenario. “We are going to come out with a press release at an acceptable time,” social gathering spokesperson Kunal Ghosh mentioned.

Speaker Biman Banerjee mentioned the probe company should inform the speaker earlier than arresting a member of the meeting.

“The ED or CBI, whereas arresting any MP or MLA, has to tell the speaker of the Lok Sabha or meeting. That is the constitutional norm. However I’ve not obtained any communication from ED about Chatterjee’s arrest,” he mentioned.

Mr Chatterjee was arrested after round 26 hours of interrogation.

His questioning – which started Friday morning – was carried out all through the evening after ₹ 20 crore was recovered from the home of his shut affiliate of Arpita Mukherjee.

“The mentioned quantity is suspected to be proceeds of crime of the mentioned SSC rip-off,” the probe company mentioned in a press release.

Trinamool Congress has distanced itself from Arpita Mukherjee saying she has no hyperlinks with the social gathering.

“The cash recovered by ED has nothing to do with Trinamool. Those that are named on this investigation, it’s their accountability to reply the questions associated to them or their legal professionals,” TMC Normal Secretary Kunal Ghosh tweeted.

Other than the Enforcement Directorate, or ED, the alleged rip-off is being investigated by Central Bureau of Investigation. Whereas the ED is wanting into the cash path within the rip-off, the CBI is investigating the alleged irregularities within the recruitment of Group-C and D workers and lecturers in state-sponsored and aided colleges.

The ruling Trinamool Congress described the raids as a “ploy” by the BJP authorities on the Centre to “harass” its political opponents. Denying any function to play within the difficulty, the BJP has claimed the CBI and ED are “progressing on proper path” and that “extra skeletons will tumble out of the cabinet”.
