Bengali Minister Partha Chatterjee’s shut aide, Arpita Mukherjee, was arrested by regulation enforcement a day later Rs 20 crore in cash was recovered from her residence in Calcutta. Early as we speak, TMC leader Partha Chatterjee was arrested from the Financial Probe Agency in reference to the case. He was later introduced earlier than a courtroom.
This morning, ED officers armed with cash counting machines arrived at Arpita Mukherjee’s residence in Kolkata. In the afternoon, a truck with packing containers from RBI arrived to haul away the massive pile of cash – all in 500 and a pair of,000 denominations. The mountain of cash recovered from Arpita Mukherjee’s condominium is suspected to be the proceeds of the SSC fraud crime which is being investigated by the ED.
The Enforcement Directorate performed searches at a number of places linked to the West Bengal School Service Commission and the West Bengal Primary Education Board recruitment fraud.
