Suspended Trinamool Congress Rajya Sabha MP Kunal Ghosh has repeatedly made the claim. Later, Saradha employee Arvind Singh Chauhan, who also drove Sen’s car had claimed that such a meeting took place.The CBI is likely to quiz him on his alleged involvement in the functioning of the Bengali daily Kolom. Recently pictures of Roy at Kolom’s office had surfaced.Two Rajya Sabha MPs – Kunal Ghosh and Srinjoy Bose – and the party vice-president Rajat Majumdar of the Trinamool Congress and state sports minister Madan Mitra are behind the bars for their involvement in the Saradha scam.Earlier, Mukul Roy had said he would quit politics if the party’s link with Saradha ponzi scheme scam is proved. We (TMC) are neither thieves nor frauds. If our party’s involvement is proved under any circumstances, I will quit politics.
