ED summons TMC's Saayoni Ghosh in Bengal teacher recruitment scam

| @indiablooms | 28 Jun 2023, 10:40 am

Kolkata/IBNS: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has summoned Trinamool Congress (TMC) youth state president and Bengali actress Saayoni Ghosh in connection with the West Bengal teacher recruitment scam, media reports said.

Saayoni has been asked to appear before the ED on Friday.

She is likely to be grilled over her financial transactions with now expelled TMC youth leader Kuntal Ghosh.

Saayoni's name appeared in the scam case during a probe into some properties of Kuntal.

Former state education minister Partha Chatterjee, former primary education board president and Trinamool MLA Manik Bhattacharya are among the people who have been arrested so far in connection with the scam.

Partha and his close-aide Arpita Mukherjee were arrested in the cases after a huge cash (about Rs 50 crore) was recovered from the latter's two flats.

TMC MP and national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee too was quizzed by the Central Bureau of Investigation in connection with the same case.
