Saradha scam: CBI records Kunal Ghosh's statement

CBI recorded the statement of Saradha scam accused and suspended Trinamool Congress MP Kunal Ghosh at Presidency jail on Wednesday, as per the directive of a city session court.



Kolkata: CBI recorded the statement of Saradha scam accused and suspended Trinamool Congress MP Kunal Ghosh at Presidency jail on Wednesday, as per the directive of a city session court.

"The CBI recorded the statement of Kunal Ghosh at Presidency jail as per the directive of the court", CBI sources told PTI.

Ghosh had told metropolitan magistrate Arvind Mishra when he was produced at Bankshall Court here on December 22 "If anyone has derived the most benefit from Saradha media, then it is the chief minister."

Saradha Media, of which Ghosh was the CEO, was an arm of the Saradha Group, which is embroiled in a multi-crore rupees chit fund scam. It ran a number of newspapers and news channels before closing down in April, 2013 after the scandal surfaced.

Ghosh, who fell foul of the Trinamool Congress leadership following his outbursts against a section of it, had alleged that Mamata Banerjee and party general secretary Mukul Roy are also involved.

"I have specific information. I can provide this if I am questioned by CBI," he had claimed in the court on December 22.

The court had then directed the investigating agency to get Ghosh's statement recorded in judicial custody.
