CBI reaches Bengal Minister Manas Bhunia's office, quizzes him in ICore chit fund case
Kolkata/IBNS: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Monday questioned Trinamool Congress (TMC) MLA and West Bengal Minister Manas Ranjan Bhunia at his office in Kolkata in connection with its ongoing probe into ICore chit fund scam, officials said.
According to sources in the Central investigation agency, three CBI officials visited Manas Bhunia's office at Khadya Bhavan in Kolkata and interrogated him for nearly 1 hour and 45 minutes.
CBI had asked him to appear before its investigators at the agency's office at CGO Complex in Salt Lake at 12 pm. on Monday, and Bhunia today morning informed the CBI officers that he could not join the investigation as he would be busy in taking stock of the water logging situation in in West Medinipur's Sabang, his constituency.
CBI sources said that the agency had decided to question Bhunia at his office on Monday itself and sent a team to Khadya Bhavan.
CBI had questioned another Bengal Minister, Partha Chatterjee, at his office in connection with the same case last week.
