Jointly grill Mukul, me: Ghosh to CBI

| | Kolkata

A day after Mukul Roy resigned from Trinamool Congress which he co-founded with Mamata Banerjee, a new character made a dramatic entry into the ongoing high-pitch political drama in Bengal laying into the former Railway Minister for absolving himself and the Chief Minister from chit fund charges.

Alleging that Roy was one of those who had influenced the course of chit fund probe in multi-crore Saradha case suspended TMC MP Kunal Ghosh on Thursday asked the CBI to jointly interrogate him and Roy to dig up many hidden facts.

“The course of interrogation has been influenced in the Saradha case and Mukul Roy is of those persons who did it. If I, Kunal Ghosh had to spend years in jail why not other co-accused persons,” Ghosh said “disbelieving” Roy’s statement that Banerjee and himself were not aware of the scam taking place.

“Do you want me to believe that the general secretary of a party was unaware of the scam in which so many leaders were involved” Ghosh said adding, “I have already written to the CBI for jointly interrogating Mukul Roy and myself and watch how many facts tumble out.”

He said “if Roy is not associated with chit fund then nobody is,” asking what one of the main accused Rajat Majumdar a former DG, Police did in Roy’s official residence at Nizam Palace in Kolkata. “Before going to jail Rajat Majumdar had only two places to go, the Sharada office and Mukul Roy’s residence at Nizam Palace,” he said.
