Trinamool MP may have been involved in other activities: Police

November 27, 2013 19:19 IST
Arrested Trinamool Congress Member of Parliament Kunal Ghosh was involved in activities of the Saradha Group other than those commensurate with his position as the media CEO of the chit fund company as per fresh evidences that have emerged, the police said on Wednesday.
 
The Bidhannagar police commisonerate, under whose custody Ghosh is presently remanded, said it was considering interrogating Saradha Group chairman Sudipto Sen and Ghosh together.
 
"New evidences prove that Ghosh was involved in various other activities and matters of Saradha Group which are beyond his jurisdiction as Saradha Group media CEO," DC
(Detective Department) Bidhannagar police commissionerate Arnab Ghosh said.
 
A team of Bidhannagar police commissionerate along with Arnab Ghosh had visited Ghosh's residence on Thursday and on Wednesday morning and seized important documents, hard disks and CDs.
 
Sen, who fled after his company went bust failing to repay its thousands of mainly rural investors on their investments, was arrested by the Bidhannagar police on April 23 from Sonmarg in Kashmir.
 
The bail plea of Kunal Ghosh was rejected and he was remanded to five days' police custody on November 24. Asked about the Facebook write-up Ghosh had posted hours after he was arrested, Arnab Ghosh said," We are looking into the matter. It might be a case of impersonation. We are looking into all aspects."
 
Ghosh, however, indicated that Ghosh had been cooperating with the investigating officers.
