The Trinamool Congress suspended arrested minister Partha Chatterjee from all party posts on Thursday. Earlier, Mr. Chatterjee was sacked from the West Bengal ministry following his arrest by the Enforcement Directorate in a teachers recruitment scam case.

It is said that TMC chief and West Bengal CM Mamta Banerjee will handle the portfolios held by Mr. Partha.

According to sources after the arrest of Mr. Chatterjee, other top TMC leaders, ministers, and bureaucrats could be under the radar of central agencies, Sources said Moloy Ghatak, Paresh Adhikary, Manik Bhattacharya, and Manish Jain are under the scanner of central agencies.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Wednesday seized another Rs 28.90 crore in cash, at least 5 kg gold, and several documents at the second apartment of Arpita Mukherjee, a close aide of arrested Trinamool Congress leader  Partha Chatterjee, days after the recovery of RS 21 crore from her first flat. It took ED Officials 10 hours to count the money, and a huge amount of money was recovered from the toilet.

Last week, ED officials found Rs 21 crore in cash from the house of Arpita Mukherjee. The federal probe agency had raided the residence of Arpita Mukherjee in connection with an alleged teacher recruitment scam in West Bengal. The recovered amount is suspected to be the proceeds of crime from the scam.
