'I intend to cooperate...': TMC's Saayoni Ghosh appearing before ED in Bengal teacher recruitment scam

Kolkata/IBNS: "I intend to cooperate to the best of my abilities," said Trinamool Congress youth state president and Bengali actress Saayoni Ghosh arriving at the Enforcement Directorate (ED) office for questioning in connection with the West Bengal teacher recruitment scam on Friday.

"I was in the campaign (for panchayat polls). I have been summoned on a 48-hour notice. I am physically present here. I intend to cooperate to the best of my abilities," said Ghosh, who looked confident, speaking to the reporters.

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.

On asking about her terms with Kuntal, Saayoni said, "I will talk to them (investigators)."

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.
