Bank submits TMC a/c(s) to CBI


Kolkata: The City branch of a National Bank provided the documents of TMC’s accounts, that it maintains, to the CBI. The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), probing the multi-crore-rupee Saradha scam, last week sent notice to the bank seeking details of the accounts, including the quantum of funds maintained in these accounts as well the sources from which they came.

In pursuance of the notice, an official of the bank on Monday furnished the required details. “Today an official of the bank submitted documents related to the accounts,” said a CBI official. The Trinamool in April had furnished details of the party’s accounts since 2010 to the CBI after the agency sought the relevant details.  Opposition parties — CPI-M, BJP and the Congress — have been accusing the state’s ruling party of receiving unaccounted donations from unscrupulous sources.
