Kolkata: A local court on Monday remanded former
CPI-M minister Sushanta Ghosh in 14 days` judicial custody in
a money recovery case, rejecting a plea by Kolkata Police for
police custody.

Judge Krishna Poddar of the Alipore Special Court ordered
judicial custody for Ghosh in the case relating to the
recovery of Rs 5,15,500 from his D L Khan Road residence on
August 19.

The Kolkata Police, which is investigating the case, had
asked for police custody to facilitate interrogation of the
former minister.

Ghosh will be produced in the court on September 19 in
connection with another case relating to recovery of human
skulls which is being investigated by the State Crime
Investigation Department.

On June 4, 2011, five human skulls and bones were found in
a mass grave at Benachapra village, close to Ghosh`s ancestral
home in West Midnapore.

Following the recovery of the skulls, Syamal Acharya,
son of one of the missing victims, claimed that one of the
skeletons was his father`s.

The CID rounded up Ghosh and raided his residence and
found Rs 5 lakh along with some documents.
