Bengal teacher recruitment scam: 'Ready for even 24-hour quizzing,' says TMC's Saayoni Ghosh walking out of ED office

Kolkata/IBNS: After being quizzed for 11 hours by the Enforcement Directorate, Trinamool Congress youth president and Bengali actress Saayoni Ghosh on Friday said she was ready for even a 12-hour questioning for the sake of a probe into the West Bengal teacher recruitment scam.

Coming out of the ED office, Saayoni said, "Why 11 hours? I am even ready to get quizzed for 24 hours for the sake of the investigation."

"I was summoned with some basic documents. They will summon me again soon. I have been asked to bring details of some documents," added the TMC leader, who joined the ruling party ahead of 2021 assembly elections. 

Saayoni, who walked out of the ED office in Salt Lake at 10:45 pm, said she cooperated with the probe agency cent percent and she was ready to be summoned 100 times.

As per reports, she might be summoned again by the ED.

Saayoni's name appeared in the scam case during a probe into some properties of arrested and now expelled TMC youth leader Kuntal Ghosh.

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.
