Bengal teacher recruitment scam: TMC youth president Saayoni Ghosh to skip ED's second summon

Kolkata/IBNS: Trinamool Congress youth president Saayoni Ghosh is set to skip the Enforcement Directorate's second summon for quizzing in connection with the West Bengal teacher recruitment scam.

TMC state spokesperson Kunal Ghosh told media, "As far as I know, Saayoni Ghosh is going to campaign for the panchayat polls in Burdwan. She was orally summoned. She sent the details which the ED had asked for. Saayoni will appear before the ED after the elections."

Saayoni appeared before the ED on Friday. She was quizzed by the central probe agency for 11 hours.

On Wednesday, Saayoni was asked to appear with documents related to some of her properties.

Coming out of the ED office, Saayoni on Friday 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 had 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.
