Another woman close to Partha Chatterjee under the ED lens

Kolkata: The role of another woman, who is reportedly an aide to Partha Chatterjee, the secretary general of the Trinamool Congress arrested, is investigating multinational financial fraud related to recruitment irregularities in West Bengal. Placed under the Execution Authority (ED) scanner. Bengal School Services Commission (WBSSC).

Early on Saturday, the ED arrested Arpita Mukherjee, an aide to the current state ministry of commerce and industry, Chatterjee. Her arrest from her residence in South Kolkata was officially announced by the ED at 5:14 pm on Saturday, about seven hours after the investigative agency captured Chatterjee.

The name of the second woman under ED surveillance is Monalisa Das, Dean of the Bengal Language Department at the state-owned Kazi Nazrul University in Asansol, Burdwan district.

According to ED sources, Das’s name came from a statement made in the face of a cross-examination by Mukaji.

In 2014, when Chatterjee was the Minister of Education, it was discovered that Das was appointed directly as the head of the Bengali language department.

Das was promoted directly from assistant professor to associate professor as department head, at which point her appointment was rippling. Since then, many have claimed that the close relationship between Das and Chatterjee has helped her get valuable posts.

According to ED sources, the agency has come across at least 10 apartments registered under the name of Das, most of which are located in Bolpur-Santiniketan in the Birbhum district.

“The total value of these apartments is very disproportionate to Das’s declared income,” said an ED official.

But Das has so far claimed complete ignorance of the whole problem.

“As a teacher, I knew Partha Chatterjee, then Minister of Education. In a way he was my guardian,” she said.
