Partha Chaterjee

Kolkata:The Mamta Banerjee,lead Trinamool Congress today demanded a time-bound probe in the Enforcement Directorate case against arrested West BengalĀ  Minister Partha Chaterjee, assuring the party will not intervene politically if any leader has done anything wrong.

ED officers had on July 22 carried out raids at various places in Bengal as part of their investigation in connection to the money trail involved in a teacher recruitment scam at government-sponsored and -aided schools.

A minimum of 20 crore in cash along with other items were recovered from the residence of a woman, who apparently happens to be a close aideĀ  of Chatterjee, the industries minister who earlier served as Education Minister.

While interacting with the media, TMC spokesperson Kunal Ghosh told that the party has no connection with the woman from whose possession huge amount of cash was recovered.

Mr. Ghosh said,”The party demands time-bound investigation in the case” maintaining that investigation by central agencies in some cases have been going on for many years.

The Crime Bureau Of Investigation has been investigating the multi-crore Saradha chit fund case since 2014, while the Narada tapes case, which came to light ahead of 2016 elections, was also yet to reach closure.

“Law will take its own course; the Trinamool Congress will not interfere, however big a leader gets involved in it,” Mr.Ghosh said.
