The CBI sources said that, “during the Lok Sabha poll campaign, PM Modi had alleged that one of Mamata’s paintings went for Rs 1.8 crore. Though Sen had then denied having bought any of Mamata’s paintings, the I-T returns filed by Trinamool Congress show that his group indeed acquired one”. The amount mentioned in Trinamool’s I-T return as the expenditure was “way too excessive”.
A senior officer told reporters, “Yes, we will question him after Diwali.” Kunal Ghosh, TMC’s suspended member of Parliament was arrested by CBI in connection with the Saradha scam. He accused that, Roy, Subhendu Adhikari and Madan Mitra have involved in the scam.
During the conversation Ghosh asked, “Did Mukul Roy send Rajat Majumdar after that meeting at Nizam Palace?”
Sen responded by saying, “Yes, he had brought a bank draft. We had a long conversation”.
