A CID officer said they had evidence to suggest Ghosh’s “direct involvement” in the purported gold racket that allegedly forced goldsmiths to deposit gold in schemes floated by police officers in West Midnapore around the time of demonetisation in November 2016. A goldsmith complained to a district court, which ordered the CID probe.

Bharati Ghosh, who was superintendent of police in the district, resigned on December 28 last year after she was transferred to Barrackpore in the North 24 Parganas as commandant of the third battalion of the state armed police. She could not be contacted for comments despite several attempts.
