Kolkata: CBI Interrogates Trinamool Leader Shankudev Panda in Connection to the Saradha case at their CGO complex on Wednesday. According to CBI sources, Shankudev Panda has received Rupess 20 to 25 lakh from Saradha bank account. The interrogation will be conducted part by part and Shankudev’s Statement will be recorded, CBI sources said.
CBI will be interrogating Shankudev Panda on grounds of why he received so much money, how much he received cash also, and how many highly influential connections does he have? Panda has so far remained evasive from the agency.
CBI sources said, they had called Shankudev on Friday but he didn’t response. Hence they decided to send a legal notice to his house but before taking any action Shankudev himself came to their Saltlake Office early in the morning.
Panda was grilled by the Enforcement Directorate in December last year. There are allegations against him of regularly receiving money from Saradha chief Sudipto Sen. He allegedly got around Rs 20 lakhs in just three years.
