"We have already formed a high-powered committee. I have asked the police to take stern action against the culprits involved in the scam," Banerjee said, during an interview to a Bengali TV Channel 'Zee 24 Ghanta'.
An eight-member committee, headed by chief secretary Malay De, will devise a mechanism to deal with the issue, the CM had said earlier in the week.
The police recently busted the racket involved in supplying decomposed meat from dumping grounds to restaurants in and around the city.
Meanwhile, the West Bengal CID today arrested one person for his alleged involvement in the racket, and seized nearly six tonnes of meat from a cold storage here, a senior official of the agency said.
With the latest arrest, a total of 12 people have been held in connection with the scandal, including a leader of a political outfit.
Acting on a tip-off, the SIT formed by the CID to look into the case, nabbed the man from the Belaghata area this morning, and upon questioning, learnt about the cold storage on Canal West Road.
