Suspended Trinamool MP summoned by corporate affairs ministry

Kolkata, Oct 16 : Suspended Trinamool Congress Rajya Sabha member Kunal Ghosh, alleged to be involved in the multi-crore Saradha Group chit-fund scam, has been summoned by the ministry of corporate affairs which is probing the scandal.

"The ministry of corporate affairs, which is probing the Saradha scam, has summoned me and I will be meeting them tomorrow (Thursday)," said Ghosh who planned to leave for New Delhi Wednesday.

The journalist-turned-parliamentarian, who was earlier suspended by the Trinamool for "anti-party" activities, has been questioned multiple times by the West Bengal Police, which is probing the biggest financial scam to hit the state.

Saradha promoter Sudipta Sen, who is now behind bars, had accused several prominent leaders from various parties, including Ghosh, of complicity in the scam.

Ghosh, who earlier headed Saradha's media arm, has repeatedly claimed he was being made a scapegoat and demanded a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe.
