Rose Valley scam: Tapas Pal's CBI remand extended by three more days”

Trinamool Congress Lok Sabha MP Sudip Bandyopadhyay arrested by the CBI in Kolkata today in connection with the Rose Valley Chit Fund Scam as he didn't cooperate in probe.

TMC would launch dharnas to protest against Sudip's arrest from tomorrow, she said, adding "politics can not be done by resorting to vendetta".

"We are victims of a very vindictive prime minister who has ruined the country by demonetisation and is now trying to silence all opposition", Banerjee said here as she announced countrywide protests.

Soon after the arrest of Mr Bandyopadhyay, a BJP office in Kolkata was reportedly attacked.

Bandopadhyay's arrest - the biggest in connection with the Rose Valley scam - came three days after CBI took actor-turned Trinamool MP Tapas Pal into custody following his arrest on Friday. Rose Valley owner Gautam Kundu and several others have been behind bars for over a year now.

As per the sources that CBI found that Bandopadhyay took favours from Rose Valley, such as foreign trips and receipt of hefty amount of money.

Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has alleged that this arrest is a result of BJP's political vendetta over her party's raised pitch against demonetisation. "Around 15 of our party workers got injured in the incident", a BJP worker claimed. "But I would not do that", she said threatening the CBI officials with "appropriate action, case by case when this Government goes".

"Amit Shah, Narendra Modi should be arrested, PM Modi does not understand Indian politics".

She further claimed that Sudip Bandyopadhyay's arrest had been made under pressure from the PMO. She also alleged that the Prime Minister had "involved Adanis in the notebandi scam and he has been entrusted to get new notes printed from overseas".

She also alleged that many political parties are scared, but are not able to speak out, adding that an emergency situation is going on.

BJP leader Siddharth Nath Singh said, "It was a planned attack on the BJP office in Bengal and Mamata Banerjee should answer why the names of TMC leaders are coming to the forefront in the chit fund scam".
