Bengal school recruitment case: ED summons confidant of Trinamool Congress with connections to dubious organisations

Investigators from the Enforcement Directorate (ED), who are looking into a multi-million dollar school recruitment issue in West Bengal, have now called Sujay Krishna Bhadra, a trusted member of the Trinamool Congress' senior leadership, to the Central Government Office (CGO) building in this city on May 30.
According to sources, Bhadra would be questioned over a few dubious organisations with whom he has a lengthy history of association.
The ED has also called two other people in connection with this case. One of them is Rahul Bera, a civic volunteer by trade, and the other is Gyanananda Samanta, a Trinamool Congress Zilla Parishad member in the South 24 Parganas area.
Bhadra's home in Behala had been the target of searches by the ED on May 20. The searches took place on the same day that CBI investigators questioned Abhishek Banerjee, the national general secretary of the Trinamool Congress, in relation to the investigation.
In a previous operation, the CBI also searched Bhadra's home and took some papers and money.
The two confiscated mobile phones of Bhadra included some information that the ED detectives were able to access.
According to the reports, Bhadra will also be questioned on Tuesday over these hints that were found on his mobile phone.
Gopal Dalpati, a suspect in the case, had implicated Bhadra during the central agency's interrogations, which is how his identity had come to light.
Dalpati informed the investigators that Kuntal Ghosh, an expelled youth leader of the Trinamool Congress and an accused in the recruiting case, used to give Bhadra, whom Ghosh addressed as “Kalighater Kaku” (Kalighat's uncle), a share of the scam money he had amassed.
According to Dalpati's accounts, Ghosh said that Bhadra was his primary point of contact with the state's governing party's high brass.
