ED raids Bengal ministers Sujit Bose, Tapas Roy's residences in civic body recruitment scam probe

Kolkata/IBNS: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Friday morning raided the residences of two top West Bengal ministers, Sujit Bose and Tapas Roy, in connection with the probe into the civic body recruitment scam in the state.

"ED carrying out raids at four locations, including two locations of Bengal Fire Minister Sujit Bose in Lake Town, TMC MLA Tapas Roy's Bow Bazar residence and North Dum Dum Municipality's Ward 19 councilor Subodh Chakraborty's Birati house," IBNS has learnt.

Bose, who is the state's Fire Minister, was summoned by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) last year in connection with the alleged irregularities in the recruitment in the civic bodies.

The senior politician was previously the vice-chairman of South Dum Dum Municipality during a period of 2010-2021.

The raid comes at a time the central probe agencies- CBI and ED- are probing into the teacher recruitment scam, where erstwhile education minister Partha Chatterjee has been arrested.

In December last year, raids were conducted in nine different locations as a part of the probe into the school job scam.
