Bengal SSC scam: 'Done no wrong,' says actor Bonny Sengupta after fresh ED quizzing

Kolkata/IBNS: "I have done no wrong," said Bengali actor Bonny Sengupta after he was summoned for the second day by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with the West Bengal teacher recruitment scam on Tuesday.

Speaking to the media, Bonny said, "I know that I have done no wrong. I have cooperated with the probe agency. I hope there will be no more summons."

"I am one of the leading actors so no question should be raised on my remuneration," he added.

Bonny, who had appeared before the ED last week, was asked to provide the details of the car which he admitted to having bought with the monetary assistance of arrested Trinamool Congress youth leader Kuntal Ghosh.

The actor, who was quizzed for hours on Thursday, admitted he was helped to buy a car by Kuntal Ghosh, an accused in the case, through a single transaction of around Rs. 35-40 lakh.

Bonny on Thursday said, "I met Kuntal for the first time during an event in 2017. Later he wanted to make a film with me. I have worked for 20-22 events with him. I had requested him to make a single transaction to my car account to help me buy the vehicle."

"It was the only transaction of around Rs. 35 lahks between the two accounts," the actor, who claimed to have a personal relationship with Kuntal, said.

Bonny claimed he had made no agreement with Kuntal for the events.

The ED has reportedly claimed to have discovered some financial terms between Kuntal Ghosh and Bonny Sengupta.

Bonny, who had joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) before the 2021 state polls, also runs a production house- named BK Entertainment- along with his actor girlfriend Koushani Mukherjee.
