Officials of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) interrogated West Bengal minister Partha Chatterjee overnight in connection with the teacher recruitment scam case.


The agency sleuths, who started the interrogation at the residence of the minister at 8 AM on Friday, are still continuing with the process.

ED officials have recovered Rs 20 crore in cash from one of the properties of Chatterjee’s close associate Arpita Mukherjee in south Kolkata, sources said.

Chatterjee was the state education minister when the scam took place and ED is probing the money laundering aspect of those allegedly involved in it.
