West Bengal: TMC MP Abhishek Banerjee arrives at CBI office in Kuntal Ghosh letter case
Kolkata: Trinamool Congress (TMC) MP and general secretary Abhishek Banerjee on Saturday arrived at the Central Bureau of Investigation's (CBI) office in Kolkata for questioning in Kuntal Ghosh letter case.
CBI on Friday summoned Banerjee to appear before the agency on Saturday in the multi-crore recruitment scam in West Bengal schools. The CBI summon came after the Calcutta High Court on Thursday allowed the central agencies to quiz the TMC leader in the recruitment scam in West Bengal schools.
"I have received a summon from the CBI to appear before them tomorrow, on May 20 for examination. Despite not being given even a day's prior notice, I will still abide by the summon. I will give my full cooperation during the course of the investigation," Banerjee tweeted earlier.
"As for my Jono Sanjog Yatra, it will resume again on May 22 '23 from the same location in Bankura where I stop today. Unfazed by these events, I shall strive to serve the people of West Bengal with even greater dedication, zeal and commitment. Bring it on," he added.
Central agencies previously questioned Abhishek, his wife and his sister-in-law in relation to a coal smuggling scam case. (ANI)
