Kolkata, Nov 24 IANS | 11 months ago

Arrested in connection with the Saradha Group chit-fund scam, suspended Trinamool Congress MP Kunal Ghosh was Sunday presented before a West Bengal court amid tight security.


Ghosh, who was the CEO of Saradha's media arm, was arrested Saturday night and has been charged under Sections 420 (cheating), 406 (criminal breach of trust) and 120B (conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

The state police in the morning searched Ghosh's residence in the city.

After his arrest, police said they have enough evidence to indicate that "Ghosh played an equal part with Sudipta Sen (Saradha promoter and scam kingpin) in most of his misdeeds".
