Kolkata: BJP on Saturday said that it was fearing for the lives of those who were naming "influential people belonging to the top Trinamool leadership" alleging their involvement in the multi-crore Saradha scam, now under CBI investigation.
"We are really fearing about the lives of persons who are taking names of influential people belonging to the top Trinamool leadership either during interrogation or court appearance in the Saradha case", state BJP president Rahul Sinha said.
He said the state unit would write to home minister Rajnath Singh to provide security cover to people like Kunal Ghosh, Sudipto Sen, Aravind Chauhan and Asif Khan as they had taken names of some persons.
"We are asking for their security in the interest of the case as their lives are important for the real truth to emerge", he told reporters here today.
While both Sen and Ghosh were in jail custody, Khan was interrogated by CBI while Chauhan got bail in a Saradha case recently.
