Nobel laureate Amartya Sen not receiving West Bengal's highest civilian award Banga Bibhushan

Speculation is rife over the news since it broke amid a political hullabaloo and call for award boycott by a prominent Left leader over the recovery of a huge amount of money from a female aide of West Bengal Industry Minister Partha Chatterjee and his subsequent arrest by the Enforcement Directorate in the teachers' recruitment scam.
