BENGAL Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee cried foul after Senior Trinamool Congress MP and Former Union Minister Sudip Bandopadhyay was on Friday grilled for long hours by the Enforcement Directorate in the Rose Valley chit fund case. Bandopadhyay, who was earlier arrested by the CBI and spent about a year in an Odisha jail, has been granted conditional bail by the Orissa High Court. He maintains a low profile after his release on bail .Media report quoting sources said the ED was not satisfied with the answers and documents provided by Bandopadhyay who was close to the TMC supremo. .“Documents were incomplete and replies were too,” media added. The Lok Sabha Member has been asked to appear once again with relevant documents supporting his claims. Another TMC MP Tapas Paul , film star turned politician ,had also been summoned by the ED. Paul has also been released on bail. Commenting on her party’s leader Bandopadhyay’s grilling by ED, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said Bandopadhyay was being unnecessarily being harassed by the agencies at the direction from Delhi. “I want to know what he has done. Why is he being persecuted and harassed like this?”She said Bandopadhyay’s fault was that he was vociferously criticising the NDA Government in Parliament. Meanwhile ,the CBI which was also probing the chit fund cases, has issued summons to senior IPS officers including Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar, A Ghosh and former Additional CP Pallab Kanti Ghosh.They were entrusted with the probe into the multi-crore fraud by the Mamata Government before CBI took over the case at the instance of the Supreme Court of India. Ghosh has already appeared before the CBI and recorded his statements.
