Kolkata: Justice Ashim Kumar Roy has virtually indicated on Tuesday that Saradha accused Kunal Ghosh might be granted bail on Wednesday.
The Kolkata High Court would provide a order in writing after hearing the conditions as provided by the CBI on Wednesday. But as per the lawyer, the chances of getting a bail are higher.
Saradha accused Kunal Ghosh has been in the jail since about 2 years. He has lashed out at both the TMC party and its supremo Mamata Banerjee. He had filed requests for bail in lower as well as High court.
Kunal Ghosh is an Indian politician from All India Trinamool Congress (currently suspended by party for an indefinite period) and a Member of the Parliament of India representing West Bengal in the Rajya Sabha.
He was the CEO of Channel 10 and the editor of Bengali dailies Sangbad Pratidin and Sakalbela and head of the Media unit of Saradha Group where he was paid a salary of Rs 16 lac per month. Sudipta Sen in his letter to CBI, accused Ghosh of forcing him to sign some documents and letters for sale of the news channel Channel 10 to him, an allegation denied by Ghosh.
An FIR was filed against Ghosh at the Bhowanipore police station by employees of the closed Bengali daily Sakalbela for non-payment of salaries and another at the Park Street police station by employees of Channel 10, for a similar reason. He was later interrogated by the police on these charges.
