 Enforcement Directorate (ED) Summons Sujay Krishna Bhadra, Alleged Associate of Trinamool Congress Leadership, for Questioning in West Bengal School Recruitment Scam

ED Summons Bhadra for Questioning at CGO Complex on May 30

Enforcement Directorate (ED) officials, investigating the multi-crore school recruitment case in West Bengal, have summoned Sujay Krishna Bhadra, a trusted associate of the top leadership of the Trinamool Congress, to appear for questioning at the Central Government Office (CGO) complex on May 30. This development comes as the investigative agencies continue to dig deeper into the alleged irregularities surrounding the recruitment process.

Inquiry into Bhadra's Association with Questionable Entities

Sources indicate that the ED will inquire about Sujay Krishna Bhadra's long-standing association with certain entities that have raised suspicions. These entities are under scrutiny due to their potential involvement in the recruitment scam. The investigation aims to uncover any connections or involvement Bhadra may have had with these questionable individuals or organizations.

Additional Summons Issued to Two Other Individuals

In connection with the ongoing investigation, the ED has also summoned two other individuals for questioning. Gyanananda Samanta, a Trinamool Congress Zilla Parishad member from South 24 Parganas district, and Rahul Bera, a civic volunteer, have been called to provide relevant information pertaining to the case. Their testimonies may shed light on the broader network and activities associated with the alleged scam.

Raids at Bhadra's Residence and Seizure of Mobile Phones

On May 20, the ED conducted raids at Sujay Krishna Bhadra's residence in Behala. The search took place concurrently with the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) questioning Trinamool Congress's national general secretary, Abhishek Banerjee, regarding the same case. During the raid, the ED seized documents and cash, further intensifying the scrutiny surrounding Bhadra's involvement.

ED investigators have obtained valuable leads from the mobile phones seized from Bhadra. These clues are expected to be a focal point of the upcoming questioning session on Tuesday, providing the ED with additional insights into the case.

Bhadra's Connection Alleged by Suspect Gopal Dalpati

The name of Sujay Krishna Bhadra came to the forefront when Gopal Dalpati, a suspect in the recruitment case, implicated him during interrogations conducted by the central agency. According to Dalpati's statement, Kuntal Ghosh, an expelled youth Trinamool Congress leader and a key accused in the scam, used to funnel a portion of the illicit funds to Bhadra, affectionately known as 'Kalighater Kaku' (uncle of Kalighat) by Ghosh. The accused reportedly claimed that Bhadra served as his primary link to the state's ruling party's top leadership.

The ED's intensified investigation, bolstered by information provided by key witnesses, seeks to unravel the intricate web of connections surrounding the school recruitment scam. As the inquiry progresses, a clearer picture is expected to emerge, shedding light on the alleged involvement of influential figures and potential systemic flaws in the recruitment process.

The summons issued by the Enforcement Directorate to Sujay Krishna Bhadra, coupled with the investigation into his association with suspicious entities, signifies a significant development in the ongoing inquiry into the West Bengal school recruitment scam. The questioning at the CGO complex aims to extract crucial information from Bhadra, a close confidant of the Trinamool Congress leadership. The case continues to unfold, and as more testimonies and evidence are gathered, the authorities are inching closer to unraveling the intricacies of the alleged irregularities, ensuring accountability and transparency in the education system.
