Trinamool's Kunal Ghosh sent to police custody

Kolkata, Nov 24 : Arrested in connection with the Saradha Group chit-fund scam, suspended Trinamool Congress MP Kunal Ghosh Sunday was remanded in police custody for five days by a West Bengal court.


Rejecting his bail plea, the court of additional chief judicial magistrate (Bidhannagar) ordered him to be sent to police custody for five days, counsel said.

Ghosh, 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).

Meanwhile, police searched Ghosh's residence in the city.

Police after his arrest said that 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".
