Anil Goswami sacked for favouring Matang


New Delhi: Home secretary Anil Goswami was sacked on Wednesday on charges of trying to interfere in the Saradha scam probe by asking CBI director Anil Sinha not to arrest former Congress minister Matang Sinh, a key accused in the case, official sources said.

Singh was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in Kolkata on Saturday on charges of criminal conspiracy, cheating and misappropriation of funds. He allegedly took Rs 28 crore for selling a television channel that never went on air to Saradha Group chairman Sudipta Sen.
