ED further interrogates Kunal Ghosh in Saradha scam

Suspended MP Kunal Ghosh was today interrogated by the (ED) here on his role in the Saradha ponzi scam, after being interrogated by the Bidhannagar Police nine times.

Responding to a volley of questions about his knowledge on Saradha group chairman Sudipta Sen's rapid rise from a small time fund manager and real estate dealer in South 24 Parganas' Bishnupur area, Ghosh told reporters after coming out of the ED's Salt Lake office, "knows better than me. I was asked to be present in the ED's office today which I did."

On Saradha's agreement with Pratidin Publication, Ghosh said "I have told the ED that Srinjoy Bose (MP of Trinamool Congress) knows it."

Asked about Saradha's overseas programmes, he said "Retired IPS Rajat Majumdar knows it better."

Describing it as "most unfortunate", state transport minister Madan Mitra said he was introduced to Sen at a function at Bishnupur, after he was elected from there in the in 2009.

"But, I came to know that Sen was doing his business in there since 2006," he said.

The ED interrogated Ghosh first time in Delhi some weeks back.

Asked about Sudipta Sen's letter to the CBI, accusing him of extorting money from him, Ghosh alleged Sen's letter to the agency was nothing but a conspiracy.

"The conspiracy was hatched in a way to divert attention from the main issue and implicate me," he claimed.

ED sources, however, could not be contacted.

Apart from being grilled repeatedly by the local police, Ghosh was also summoned by the Serious Fraud Investigation Office (SFIO) under the Ministry of Corporate Affairs.
