Trinamool Youth Congress President and Bengali actor Saayoni Ghosh has been summoned by Enforcement Directorate again on July 5 in connection with the teachers’ recruitment scam case in West Bengal.
Earlier, she was summoned by the agency on Friday.
After leaving the ED office after an 11-hour-long interrogation, Saayoni Ghosh on Friday said that she has submitted some basic documents and cooperated with ED officials.
“I have submitted some of the basic documents and cooperated with them (ED officials) too. I stayed here for 11 hours today. I think they (ED officers) are satisfied. I may come again if they ask me,” she told the reporters.
Earlier, the ED summoned Trinamool Congress national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee to appear before it on June 13 in connection with the alleged teacher recruitment scam on June 8.
In May, Mr Banerjee was questioned for over 9 hours by the Central Bureau of Investigation in the multi-crore recruitment scam in West Bengal schools.
Trinamool MP Shatrughan Sinha on Friday slammed the BJP government for harassing the opposition using central agencies and claimed that it it’s their “desperate attempt for revenge.”
“Some people are there, and some agencies that are there are not doing the right thing; they are trying unsuccessfully to harass many people, especially the opposition,” Shatrughan Sinha said.
Lashing out at the BJP, he said that it is a desperate attempt to take revenge before they go out of power. “It is a desperate attempt for revenge; as the lamp flickers before extinguishing, the same condition exists for the BJP,” he said.
