Suspended Trinamool Congress MP Kunal Ghosh was summoned by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs in connection with the latter’s ongoing probe into the Saradha chitfund scam.
“The MCA has asked me to visit their office in Delhi tomorrow. I will co-operate with the investigation,” Ghosh told PTI on Wednesday.
Ghosh, who was suspended by the Trinamool Congress last month on account of “anti-party activities”, has already been summoned by the Bidhanagar Police six times in the past one month in connection with the scam. Ghosh, who was the CEO of the Saradha media group, had earlier threatened to disclose names if he was arrested in the scam and demanded an inquiry by his party saying he had much to tell the leadership.
A few days ago, Somnath Dutta, a senior executive of Saradha media and a close aide of Ghosh, was remanded to police custody for seven days in connection with the case.
The scam, in which lakhs of investors were duped, came to light in April, following which group chairman Sudipta Sen, along with two others from Sonmarg, was arrested.
