Kolkata (West Bengal) [India], Jan. 11 : Suspended Trinamool Congress (TMC) Rajya Sabha MP Kunal Ghosh has been interrogated for several hours by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in connection with Rose Valley and Saradha chit-fund scams.
The Calcutta High Court, earlier, on December 22 had extended the interim bail of the suspended TMC lawmaker till today in connection with his involvement in Saradha chit-fund scam.
Ghosh, an accused in the Saradha scam, was on October granted interim bail against a bail bond of Rs. two lakh by the Calcutta High Court. Ghosh had earlier in October last year gone on an indefinite hunger strike inside the Calcutta jail alleging unfair probe against him by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
The CBI had interrogated the suspended TMC leader in December last year. Ghosh was arrested on November 23, 2013, and sent to custody by the CBI on September 4, 2014, after it took over the investigation on the orders of the Supreme Court.
