50 bank accounts linked to Partha Chatterjee to undergo a forensic audit

50 bank accounts linked to Partha Chatterjee to undergo a forensic audit

Kolkata: The Enforcement Directorate is set to send 50 bank accounts held individually or jointly by prime accused Partha Chatterjee and his close aide Arpita Mukherjee for a forensic audit. The move is related to the probe of a multi-crore teacher recruitment scam.

The investigative agency has reached out to bank authorities for statement details. They will be then handed over to experts.

Officials have also discovered a shell company linked to the scam. The names of the directors of the company were changed a few times since March 2012. The company is called Ananta Texfab Private Limited and its address is Club Town Heights, Block 5, Flat 8A, 14 B.T. Road, Kolkata 700056. This happens to be the address of Arpita Mukherjee's flat from where the ED recovered a huge stash of cash and gold on July 28.

When the corporate entity was floated, its three directors were Partha Chatterjee's deceased wife, late Babli Chatterjee, daughter Sohini (Bhattacharya) Chatterjee, and son-on-law Kalyanmoy Bhattacharya.

In 2016, Arpita Mukherjee's name was included and Babli and Sohini's names were removed. However, the current names on the documents are Mrinmoy Malakar and Ranesh Kumar Singh.

An ED official said the names of directors changing so frequently is a sign of "something fictitious". "Probably this is another shell company which was used to divert funds to different channels. Now we are trying to detect the identity of the two current directors and their links with Partha Chatterjee and Arpita Mukherjee."

The probe agency has summoned Sohini (Bhattacharya) Chatterjee and Kalyanmoy Bhattacharya for questioning. Both are currently in the US and ED has asked them to come to Kolkata.
