Kolkata: The Enforcement Directorate (ED), which is probing the multi-crore school job scam, has made a big disclosure saying the arrested West Bengal minister Partha Chatterjee has been “non-cooperating” with its officials and “not replying” to most of their questions in connection with the money trail.
The central agency said that the suspended Trinamool Congress leader has “remained silent most of the time” during the questioning about a conspiracy that he referred to while speaking to journalists at ESI Hospital at Joka where he was taken for a medical check-up.
Chatterjee had on Friday asserted that he was a “victim of a conspiracy” and expressed unhappiness over TMC’s decision to suspend him. “He has been non-cooperating with us since he was arrested. He is often complaining of tiredness and avoiding our questions. We have asked Chatterjee about his claims that the money does not belong to him So, we are looking for the source of the money,” the ED official was quoted as saying.
Chatterjee, who is at the centre of a multi-crore school job scam, on Sunday claimed that the money recovered during ED raids does not belong to him, and only time will tell who all “conspired” against him
