Bengal teacher recruitment scam: CBI conducts searches in 6 locations in Delhi and Kolkata
Kolkata/IBNS: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Thursday conducted a search operation in six locations of a software company in Delhi and Kolkata in connection with the teacher recruitment scam in West Bengal, media reports said.
As per reports, the company, which came under the scanner, had allegedly manipulated records to favour candidates in the appointment of teachers.
Earlier the central probe agency had filed a First Information Report (FIR) against erstwhile junior state education minister Paresh Adhikari and his daughter Ankita Adhikari for an alleged illegal appointment of the latter in a state-run school.
The Enforcement Directorate, which probes the financial irregularities, has already arrested former state education minister Partha Chatterjee and his aide Arpita Mukherjee after a huge cash of money worth Rs. 50 crore were recovered from the latter's flats in Kolkata.
