Bengal SSS Scam: CBI will once again interrogate West Bengal cabinet minister Partha Chatterjee in the SSC corruption case. The name of the then Education Minister Partha Chatterjee was mentioned in the report presented before the Calcutta High Court by the inquiry committee headed by former judge Ranjit Kumar Bagh.
Based on the report, the High Court directed the CBI to interrogate the Education Minister to ascertain the fact. Also said that behind the huge corruption in the School Service Commission is the hand of an invisible influential political person. Although Minister Partha Chatterjee approached the division bench of the High Court challenging this order of the single bench, but the division bench of Justices Harish Tandon and Rabindranath Samant refused to hear his application on the same day.
The interrogation lasted for about three and a half hours.
Ultimately, the current Industries Minister had to appear before the CBI Investigating Officer at the Nizam’s Palace last Wednesday evening. Following the order of the Honorable High Court, around 6 pm, West Bengal’s TMC leaders and veteran ministers reached Nizam’s Palace. Last Wednesday, the CBI questioned him for about three and a half hours. After questioning, Minister Partha Chatterjee left the Nizam’s Palace with a smiling face, though he refused to say anything on camera. But the CBI claims that there were many discrepancies in the answers of the Education Minister, he did not even answer some questions.
Partha Chatterjee ignored some important questions
According to CBI sources, Partha Chatterjee tried to ignore some important questions by answering ‘I don’t remember anymore’. To clarify all these important questions, the CBI on Wednesday issued another notice to Partha Chatterjee to appear in the Nizam’s Palace in connection with the alleged corruption in the School Service Commission.
