Kolkata: A day after he expressed his annoyance over repeated interrogation by the police, suspended Trinamool Congress MP Kunal Ghosh today met party general secretary Mukul Roy for the first time after he was suspended from the party.

Ghosh, however, termed his visit as a "courtesy visit" after Durga Puja.
"It was courtesy visit to Mukulda. He is a senior leader of my party," Ghosh, who was suspended from the party on September 28 for anti-party statement, said.

The meeting between Ghosh and Roy comes a day before Serious Fraud Investigation Office (SFIO) of the Ministry of Corporate affairs summoned Ghosh for the second time in one week.

"Tomorrow the SFIO has summoned me for interrogation I will fully cooperate with them," said Ghosh.

Ghosh was summoned for the seventh time yesterday by Bidhanangar police commissionarate in connection with the Saradha Group ponzi scam.
Ghosh, who was the CEO of the Saradha media group, had earlier threatened to disclose names if he was arrested in the scam and demanded an inquiry by his party saying he had much to tell the leadership.
A few days ago, Somnath Dutta, a senior executive of Saradha media and a close aide of Ghosh was remanded to police custody for seven days in connection with the case.

The Saradha scam, in which lakhs of investors were duped, came to light in April after which group chairman Sudipta Sen was arrested along with two others from Sonmarg in Jammu and Kashmir.
